Date - Friday, 27th January 2017 (All Day)


***ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 16TH DECEMBER!***

We’re excited to announce the 5th Annual RiDNet conference “I, Researcher: exploring the research experience – context, self and interdisciplinary practice”

27th January 2017, School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds

The Researchers in Development Network, or RiDNet, is a student led network of PhD students and early career researchers working in international development and/or conducting social research in developing countries.  Our annual conference aims to give students and early career researchers a chance to share experiences, ideas and methods.

This year, we’re aiming to explore the experience of conducting research. The conference will focus on three themes (see attached document for more details) and we encourage researchers to submit abstracts reflecting on their experiences of conducting research within (1) different contexts; (2) self; and (3) interdisciplinary practice.

Please see attached document or http://cgd.leeds.ac.uk/events/call-for-abstracts-5th-annual-ridnet-conference/ for more details on abstract submission.  Please send a 300 word (maximum) abstract to ridnet@leeds.ac.uk by the 16th December 2016.
