This conference will give PhD students and early career researchers (within 5 years after finishing a PhD) the opportunity to network, collaborate and socialise with others working in regional and urban studies, planning, geography, politics, development studies, economics and related fields. This is an annually run conference and previous participants particularly valued the invaluable feedback received, new ideas and learning how to strategically develop and enhance their profiles for career progression.
The conference will bring together a range of international participants from different disciplines to present and debate their work in a welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment. Participants will be able to enrich their engagement with contemporary research in the field and share their learning.
Experts in academic publishing, funding and impact will be present during the conference and provide insights into how to publish in academic journals, how to build a professional network, how to promote your publications, how and where to apply for funding and how to increase the impact of your work.
The 2018 conference is supported by the University of Sussex ESRC Doctoral Training Centre and organised in partnership with the School of Global Studies and the Institute of Development Studies.
We welcome submissions with a regional focus and especially those in the following areas:
Methods Roundtable Session: The conference will include a roundtable session on methods. For this session we welcome abstracts addressing a methodological problem or innovation.
Abstract submission: Please submit your research and/ or methods abstract (up to 500 words) via the Regional Studies Association conference portal by 20th September 2018. Abstracts will be considered against the criteria of originality and interest, subject balance and geographical spread.
