Post-Conference Workshop

April 14, 2019
9AM–12PM

Presenting Critical Research and Methodologies

This hands-on workshop focuses on strategies for presenting and explaining critical research and methodologies to wider audiences. It addresses questions regarding how to structure critical arguments, where and how to submit written manuscripts, and how to consider both in relation to larger concerns around the ethics of publishing. While the workshop focuses primarily on publication in the form of refereed outputs, conference papers, and public commentaries, its format ensures that it is open to discussing a various modes and outlets for disseminating information. It also sets aside time for reflecting on challenges and dilemmas surrounding “dissemination” when one’s research is generated through co-productive engagement with participants and interlocutors.

The workshop targets early career academics, with preference given to scholars from underrepresented groups; junior, underemployed, and contingent faculty members; and PhD candidates with ABD status. The format requires participants to write a paragraph-length overview of their main research project and circulate an outline or draft of a manuscript in advance of the meeting.

Workshop Facilitator:

Dr. Kathryn Henne, Canada Research Chair, Sociology and Legal Studies, University of Waterloo and Associate Professor, School of Regulation and Global Governance, Australian National University
