On Friday 3 March, 9.30am-12.30pm at Birkbeck, University of London, join-in a 3-hour workshop that offers training in delivering conference presentations effectively. Conference presentation is an essential aspect of the working life of a professional researcher. Yet doctoral students often acquire skills in this area somewhat unevenly, learning through trial and error. This workshop approaches the conference presentation as a moment of public performance. It asks: what are the formal features of an effective presentation? What techniques can a presenter use to communicate with his or her audience – whether in the context of scholarly conferences, public lectures, or arts venues? This workshop is run in collaboration with artists from Haranczak-Navarre Performance Projects.
The Particularities of Conference Presentation is supported by the CHASE Cohort Development Fund. Places are free but limited to 20 – booking is essential:
The workshop is linked to the symposium Twofold: the Particularities of Working in Pairs, which takes place Friday 3 & Saturday 4 March 2017 at Birkbeck and Camden People’s Theatre. It will be of particular interest to students investigating collaborative practices.
20 free places are on offer to CHASE students for Twofold: the Particularities of Working in Pairs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your free symposium place.
