SRHE Newer Researchers Conference 11 December 2012
What is Higher Education For? Shared and contested ambitions
The Society for Research into Higher Education invites contributions to this international conference which will examine many perspectives about what higher education is for, explore ways in which research into higher education can support and strengthen shared ambitions and by taking a broad and multi-faceted view of the nature and purpose of higher education discussions will illuminate disputed ambitions.
The SRHE Annual Conference provides a major platform for the presentation and sharing of research in every aspect of higher education.
You are invited to contribute to this debate in a variety of ways: by presenting a paper, including work of a conceptual or theoretical nature, forming or participating in a symposium, or organising a round table on any aspect of this year's theme or your own research interests. Empirical and scholarly research from a wide range of perspectives is welcome.
Submitting authors will be asked to provide an abstract for peer review in two parts;
Part 1 Abstract: This needs to be a 150 word maximum summary of the proposal. This will be the information printed in the published conference programme.
Part 2 Outline: It will be a maximum 1000 word outline of the research to be presented. Both parts will be required at the point of first submission and there will be no subsequent call for full papers for accepted abstracts later in the year.
The full abstract of parts 1 and 2 will be available for all delegates on a CD Rom at the Conference.
Deadline for conference paper submissions: Friday 29 June 2012
