Methods Fair 2017

Methods Fair 2017 will take place on 1 November 2017 at the University of Manchester

Let’s get creative!

methods@manchester is delighted to announce that this year’s Methods Fair will be held on 1 November at The University of Manchester. Our theme is creative data presentation and visualisation.
Researchers use a range of methodologies, some which automatically lend themselves to presenting data in creative ways and others, less so. At our annual Methods Fair we 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.  We explore these from a range of perspectives across the Humanities. We aim to bring together and inspire postgraduate researchers and academics, as well as those working in industry.
We are pleased to announce our 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, we invite postgraduate researchers to enter our photography competition. We ask that they 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.
