School Research Higher Degree Symposia
Each semester the School of Humanities and Social Science conducts a symposium for Research Higher Degree (RHD) candidates. This takes the form of presentations by RHD candidates during the first year of their full-time enrolment (or equivalent) as part of the confirmation process required by the University. In addition, continuing RHD candidates are welcome to hone their presentation skills and seek audience feedback on their work, by regularly presenting on their progress throughout their candidature.
The symposia provide a forum to showcase the wide range of fascinating postgraduate research projects in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Each symposium begins with a professional development seminar. This is followed by 3 concurrent streams of papers delivered by RHD candidates, with time for questions from the audience.
Symposia will conclude with a prize-giving ceremony for the School's latest RHD Graduates.
All RHD candidates, supervisors, presenters, and discipline/program convenors in the School are invited to attend. Please RSVP to Helen Moffatt for catering purposes and to advise of any dietary needs.
