SWDTP Student Conferences

The 2022 annual conference is coming soon!

Take a look at our poster below or contact the committee (swdtpconference@gmail.com) to find out more.

You don’t need to be funded by the SWDTP to present at the conference or attend – if you are a PGR with an interest in social sciences, this conference is for you.

As voted on by PGRs across the south west, the theme of our conference this year is Collaboration and Connectivity with presentations from students and the opportunity to hear from researchers who now work outside of academia. If you are interested in presenting, have a look at the poster below. For attendees, more information will be available soon. Be sure to follow the SWDTP and the SWDTP Conference on Twitter for updates!

The SWDTP is cordially inviting all PGR social science students to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations for the 2022 student conference that will be held on 16 November 2022 at UWE Bristol. The length of abstracts should not exceed 150 words on the theme of “Collaboration and Connectivity”. Please indicate what type of presentation you would prefer to take part in (oral or poster or both). We welcome other creative submissions such as poems, short films and short pieces.

The deadline for submissions is 10 August 2022. If interested, kindly send your abstracts to swdtpconference@gmail.com as Microsoft Word or plain text documents and please include the phrase "Abstract Submission" in your subject headings. Notification of acceptance will be made by the end of August 2022.

For any other inquiries about the conference, you are welcome to contact the organising committee at swdtpconference@gmail.com.
