Next week I am presenting at the SRHE (Society for Research into Higher Education) annual conference.
It has been really difficult to come to ‘presentable’ conclusions given that today was my last observation and I still have one interview to transcribe but it was an incredibly useful task to force myself to do it and I hope I’ll get lots out of it. I am presenting at the Newer Researcher’s Conference on Tuesday and as part of a CHEER symposium on Thursday.
- My presentation for the newer researcher’s conference attempts to use the work of 3 theorists - Sara Ahmed, Lauren Berlant and Karen Barad - to read one piece of data. The presentation can be found here.
- My presentation for the main conference is more of a reflection on two potential themes - the role of affect in critical thinking and whether critical thinking can be performed or whether it involves a changed way of being. The presentation can be found here.
I will post a reflection on the conference letting you know how it goes. Though I’m really looking forward to talking about my research and meeting new people, I have to say, the fact there is a spa makes it even more exciting!
