‘Life beyond the PhD': an interdisciplinary residential conference at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor 26-29 August 2014
Cumberland Lodge, which is an educational charity, is organising a residential conference to give postgraduates and post docs from all disciplines an opportunity to exchange ideas, practices, experiences and aspirations. All participants will be expected to give a 10 minute presentation on their research pitched at non-specialists.
This conference offers postgraduate students and post docs the opportunity to explain to peers from other disciplines why their research matters, while also hearing from leading figures in academia and outside explain how research has changed their lives.
The Graduate School is able to fully-fund two places for PhD students and two places for Post Docs at this conference. If you are interested in attending, please send in a brief justification (200 words maximum) for your proposed attendance to the Director of the Graduate School, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject title ‘Cumberland Lodge’, by the deadline of 5pm on 23 MAY 2014. The justification should explain how you think you would benefit from attending the conference and presenting a paper.
98% of attendees at previous conferences were either satisfied or very satisfied and 98% would recommend the event.
Further details of the event, which takes place in a beautiful residential conference centre within Windsor Great Park, can be found at www.cumberlandlodge.ac.uk
The conference fee covers all accommodation (in shared rooms) and the Graduate School will also cover reasonable travel expenses from London on presentation of receipts after the event.
