UCP Host 9th Annual Humanities and Social Science Conference

Level 6 students pose with their Panel and People's Choice Awards.

University Centre Peterborough hosted its 9th annual Humanities and Social Science Conference. This academic conference brought together industry professionals, lecturers, and local college students, allowing them the chance to listen to the University Centre’s Level 6 students’ dissertation presentations.

The event, organised by University Centre Peterborough’s very own Claire Bowes, Paul Wilks, and Rebecca Treston, covered many different subjects and specialties. There was a number of presentations taking place across the morning and afternoon.

Claire Bowes, Course Leader of Psychosocial Studies, and one of the organisers of the event, praised the calibre of work being presented by the students; “Our interdisciplinary conference brings together a broad variety of perspectives”. Claire continued, “Our students gained expert feedback on their dissertations in progress via panel members. Presenters valued the feedback and experience of presenting at an academic conference and the audience was inspired by the wide range of topics that were presented with passion and knowledge”.

Whilst the conference was at foremost an academic showcase, there was still an opportunity for the students to be honoured with awards for their hard work.

Throughout the day there were panels, made up of industry professionals from a range of backgrounds, including PCVS, University of Westminster, Womens' Aid Peterborough, and many more, which then attended the presentations. These individuals were split into eight panels, and came together to pick their favourites, which were put forward for the ‘Panel Choice’ award.

Alongside this, each audience member had the chance at the end of the day, to vote for their favourite presentations, which were then put forward for the ‘People’s Choice’ award.

A huge well done to not only the winners, but every Level 6 student who presented; each conducted themselves professionally and gave passionate, inspiring presentations. This conference was a fantastic opportunity for students to gather valuable insights on their dissertations, as well as gain experience presenting in front of large audiences of people. We can’t wait for next year to be bigger and better!
