Conference Registration Open!

I may have mentioned that I’ve been involved in organising a conference on Creative Research Methods in the Social Sciences, where my next book will be launched. This conference will be on 8 May 2015 at the British Library Conference Centre in central London. I’m delighted to say that registration for this conference is now open.

This means I can also reveal the line-up. The keynote speech will be given by Professor David Gauntlett, author of several books including Creative Explorations and Making is Connecting. Then we have four subject experts who have agreed to chair the workshop streams and form a final panel:

Dr Kitrina Douglas, champion golfer, broadcaster, sports researcher at Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Met), poet and songwriter, will chair the arts-based research workshop stream
Jamie Bartlett, Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Social Media at Demos, will chair the research using technology workshop stream
Matt Barnard, Head of Evaluation at NSPCC, will chair the mixed method research workshop stream
Dr Molly Warrington, Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at Cambridge University, will chair the transformative research frameworks stream

There is an ‘early bird’ discount of 10% on bookings made before the end of January. Don’t miss out! Hope to see you there.

Four weeks to go!

I am already very excited about the 8th of May 2015. Because, on that day, I will be at a conference on Creative Research Methods, run by the Social Research Association, at the British Library. And my next book will be launched there!

So why am I saying ‘four weeks to go’ when it’s clearly six months away? Because there is just one month to go to get your abstracts in, if you want to present your work at this conference and earn yourself a hefty discount on the cost in the process.

I’ll let you know when we’re open for registration – should be in the next week or two.
