Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences PGR Showcase 2019

On the 12th June, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) held a Postgraduate Research Showcase, to highlight the range of research being undertaken by PGRs across the Faculty.

Professor Fiona Beveridge, Eexecutive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for HSS attended to present the Academic Judges’ Prize to the Postgraduate Researcher (PGR) Hyacinthe Caldwell from University of Liverpool Management School.

Hyacinthe’s poster was entitled How and why does self-expatriation shape repatriates career paths? External cultural partners in attendance were Roger McKinley from FACT and Francoise McClafferty from National Museums Liverpool, who judged the External Partner Prize, won by Liam Markey from the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology with his poster entitled Militarism and Mourning: British Commemoration since 1918.

Students were also invited to vote for their favourite poster, and the winner of the Student Prize was Morven Cook from the Department of English, with her poster entitled, ‘While the critic of the world watches’: Disability and the City. In the video category, the winner was online Educational Development PGR Jim Smiley, with his video Epistemic Cognition in a Japanese University.

The event was well attended by staff and students and was a fantastic opportunity to see what everyone else is up to in the PGR community and to meet other PGRs. Thank you to the Faculty Interim Director of Postgraduate Research, Professor Bruce Gibson, for overseeing prize-giving and many thanks to all who took part for making the event such a lively and interesting display of PhD research across the Faculty. Congratulations to all of the winners!
