Annual Conference


15th Annual Doctoral Conference

‘Dream, Plan, Achieve: Researching to Make a Difference’

15- 16 June 2020 – Universities of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores (sponsored by NARTI and the ESRC)

As we enter the new decade, scholars at the cusp of their careers are increasingly encouraged to make a difference with their research both in doing something novel and innovative in terms of theory, but also to make an impact with their research beyond the confines of scholarly journals.

This conference seeks to embrace this challenge and opportunity to make a difference both within and beyond academia.

Organised over two days in summer 2020 within the vibrant city of Liverpool, this conference will focus on PhD student’s scholarly and career development by providing a supportive and engaging environment to develop research ideas, potential contributions and future career goals.

A range of high-profile and eminent academic speakers and editors of top-tier journals will share their career insights, provide feedback on individual submissions and presentations, and be available for networking throughout the conference. Further, PhD students will have the opportunity to network and build relationships with other PhD researchers from across the UK.

The event commences on Monday, 15 June in the morning and ends on Tuesday, 16 June, in the afternoon.

All sessions will be held in the University of Liverpool Management School and an evening meal is also included at The Refinery offering a further, informal, networking opportunity.
