Methods Fair 2017

November 1, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm

This year’s Methods Fair will be held on 1 November at The University of Manchester. The theme is creative data presentation and visualisation.  The event will be held in the Roscoe Building on the University of Manchester Oxford Road Campus.

Researchers use a range of methodologies, some which automatically lend themselves to presenting data in creative ways and others, less so. At the annual Methods Fair methods@manchester are celebrating the inventive ways research findings are presented and communicated. Researchers use different medium and formats to present their data triggering a variety of our senses.  They explore these from a range of perspectives across the Humanities. They aim to bring together and inspire postgraduate researchers and academics, as well as those working in industry.

The keynote will be delivered by Simon Ruding, Director of Theatre in Prison and Probation (TiPP) and Dr Jo Deakin, School of Law, University of Manchester.

This year, methods@manchester invite postgraduate researchers to enter a photography competition. They ask that participants capture their research or an issue related to it in one photographic image.  Blackwell’s vouchers will be awarded to those in 1st (£150), 2nd (£100) and 3rd (£50) places. Shortlisted images will be displayed at the Fair.

  • Methods-rated plenaries and workshops from leading academics and PhD candidates
  • opportunities to find out more about methods training
  • the chance to meet and network with researchers in your field
