Postgraduate Research Association conference

Our next annual conference, Crossing Boundaries: Beyond and Across Academia, will take place at the North Holmes Campus of Canterbury Christ Church University on 24 May 2018.

The Conference Committee at Canterbury Christ Church University is delighted to announce its 2018 conference, “Crossing Boundaries”.

Building on the success of previous years, the 2018 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth required to Cross Boundaries, as well as the relationship between arts and sciences, academia and popular research. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges traditional academic and disciplinary barriers.

Possible topic areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Hard Science in a blurred world
  • The Educator in society
  • The 21st Century uses for ancient arts
  • Time and Space
  • Historical Fake News
  • The Culture of Politics
  • Nature and Nurture in a broader field.
