On 28th October 2014 we held an event to launch the final report from the Connecting Epistemologies project. The report can be downloaded from here on the blog.
The event was about reflecting on the project and putting it in the context of work done by AHRC and by other researchers.
We opened with a talk from Sue Carver, from AHRC. Her powerpoint presentation is available to download from this link CC presentation Without Notes Oct 2014 and the report she was discussing, Support for Arts and Humanities Researchers post-PhD can be found here
All the issues and ideas he was discussing are more fully explored in the final report.
The final speaker was Bryony Enright (Bristol, @bryonyenright), dicussing ECR experiences as part of a much broader project she is working on for the Connected Communities programme. She concluded with a four part typology of ECR identities that generated much interest and debate in the room and is well worth listening to and reading about. The audio from her talk is here and her slides Bryony presentation
The session concluded with an general discussion, with many points raised by the audience- they are captured in the the tweets from the day as a storify here
Finally One audience member mentioned an ECR network at UCL that might be a useful model for dealing with some of the issues raised at the event
