The Particularities of Conference Presentation

  • Birkbeck School of Arts 43 Gordon Square London WC1H 0PD (map)

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. 

This workshop is linked to the symposium Twofold: the Particularities of Working in Pairs, which takes place on Friday 3 & Saturday 4 March 2017 at Birkbeck and Camden People's Theatre. This event will be of particular interest to researchers investigating collaborative practices.

20 free places are on offer to CHASE students for Twofold: the Particularities of Working in Pairs.  Please email l.owen@bbk.ac.uk to book your free symposium place.
