UCP News Dissertation Conference 2018

Dissertation Conference 2018

The Dissertation Conference gives the opportunity for final year students from Psychosocial Studies, Sociology, Criminology, Media Studies and English Literature degree programmes to present their dissertation ideas and progress to an audience of their peers in order to gain feedback.

The conference will take place at University Centre Peterborough on Friday 26th January 2018, and this year will have the attendance of Fiona Onasanya, Labour MP for Peterborough who will be a guest panel member.

A multi-disciplinarian approach is being taken, with the idea that peer support and feedback will benefit the final year students, as well as gaining insight from degree programmes that are different from their own.

The other major impetus behind the conference is to help cement and further develop skills of presentation and communication that would be necessary to get students Masters ready and/or ready for the world of work.

There are a total of 11 panels, with themes including sex, sexuality and relationships, violence, inequality, social media, gender and race.
