Doctoral Research Symposium

From Autumn 2001 CAMRI has been hosting the joint University of Westminster, Goldsmiths College and London School of Economics Doctoral Research Symposia in media, communication and cultural studies.

This is a unique joint venture and provides CAMRI students with the opportunity to network, collaborate and receive formal feedback from media and communication students and staff from other leading institutions with a tradition of research in the field of media, communication and cultural studies.

The University of Westminster hosts the research symposia, which take place twice a year, and involve doctoral students of all levels and stages.

In Semester 1 all second and third year students give a twenty minute presentation of an aspect of their doctoral research in panels.

The panels are themed according to research topics and are chaired by members of staff. Feedback is given by their peers and members of staff from CAMRI and other institutions who make up the audience.

This event is attended by all first year students and has proved to offer them valuable insights into the research process. In Semester 2, all first year students give twenty minute presentations in similar panels.
