Doctoral Research Conference

The 13th annual School of Education Doctoral Research Conference brings together doctoral researchers, academics and practitioners to explore key issues and developments in educational research, theory, policy and practice. The Conference includes a keynote presentation, an expert panel debate, papers in parallel sessions and a poster exhibition.

Keynote presentation: Thinking about research in dark times

with Professor Helen Gunter from the University of Manchester

Call for papers

Submissions are invited for the 2014 School of Education Doctoral Research Conference. The conference is an excellent opportunity for doctoral researchers to present papers or posters on education-related topics to a friendly and constructively critical audience. Accepted papers will be presented in parallel sessions, with 20 minutes allocated to each paper; accepted posters will be on display throughout the day, with an opportunity over lunch for delegates to ask poster presenters about their work.

Submissions for paper presentations should take the form of a title and abstract of no more than 300 words. For poster submissions, a title and description of no more than 100 words is required. There is no conference theme so your submission may address any education-related topic. You may give a general overview of your research project or a close examination of a particular issue, problem, concept or research method. Please bear in mind that your audience may not have expertise on your topic, though you can assume a broad familiarity with educational research, policy and practice.

Posters should be no smaller than A3 (30cm x 42cm) and no bigger than A1 (84cm x 59cm). A £25 book token will be awarded to the best poster at the conference.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Conference Committee.

Abstracts can be submitted online. Alternatively, abstracts can be submitted to Denise Lees ( The deadline for submission is Friday 3rd October 2014.
