Politics to showcase undergraduate research in upcoming conference
The Department of Politics will host the annual Politics & International Relations Undergraduate Research Conference virtually this year, on the 18 May 2021.
We are delighted to announce the full programme for the 2021 Politics and International Relations Student Research Conference.
The aim of this online conference is to showcase the best undergraduate research in politics and international relations at The University of Manchester, to encourage students to think of themselves as researchers and to experience academic research first hand.
The event will be a friendly, supportive opportunity for students and teachers to discuss other students’ research together and celebrate the research being carried out by students. This year, the conference is co-organised by the Politics Department and Juncture, The University of Manchester Undergraduate Politics Journal.
Panels on offer include Climate crisis and greener futures; Work, labour and resistance in contemporary capitalism; Political ethics today; International financial institutions and the Global South; Race, ethnicity and insecure politics; and Politicians, Parties and Institutions in British Politics.
The conference will also include voluntary sessions on social/networking, journal publishing and academic careers; publishing your work and editing a journal – the view from Juncture; and thinking about the final year dissertation, for second-year politics students.
Registration is now open for this event, taking place on Tuesday 18 May, you can download the programme and register here.
