We are delighted to welcome you both in person and virtually to the campus of Staffordshire University proud hosts of this years PGN Conference.
9.45am – 7pm
Welcome to the MeCCSA Postgraduate Conference - 2023. The theme this year was Diverse Voices.
We are delighted to welcome you both in person and virtually to the campus of Staffordshire University - proud hosts of this years PGN Conference.
Focusing on the sharing of knowledge and experience the theme of the conference has offered a great range of submissions and we have curated a really diverse programme.
Mixing theoretical and practice based presentations/works we hope to give a platform to a diverse collection of work and approaches on a diverse range of topics.
We were fortunate to secure a wonderful keynote speaker - Catherine Gough-Brady who has some insights into the ways in which we can research and importantly share that knowledge.
Many people helped with this project, and although we cannot name them all here, we are very grateful for all the help and support we have received.
We do hope you enjoy this event, the opportunities to network and encounter new works and approaches.
Dr Sharon Coleclough and Dr Agata Lulkowska
