For 2017, Critical Edge presents twelve events designed to support doctoral supervisors and students within the Faculty of Creative Arts and Industries.
Spread from March to November, the interactive workshops, writing retreats and symposium provide academic staff and doctoral students with a place to meet, eat, share ideas and gain new practical tools. Facilitated by guest specialists, the events provide stimulating sustenance for doctoral journeys, within a supportive research community.
Whether you are at the start or end of your doctoral journey, a current academic supervisor, researching architecture, urban design, urban planning, fine arts, dance or music, these events will help you to produce, supervise, and publish knowledge of international significance in a collegial environment.
Imagine your thesis
The Imagine Your Thesis workshop series is a creative playground that allows you to drop in and explore how you might Connect, Move, Sing, Design, Perform, and Politicise your doctoral research project. Creative supervisorial staff from different disciplines and doctoral colleagues from across the Faculty make this a fun social gathering.
Express Your Thesis
Our annual doctoral students’ symposium provides a full-cycle preparation for the academic conference experience. Through workshops on writing abstracts, a process of peer-review and selection, and subsequent workshops on presentation skills, your final symposium presentation with colleagues from across the faculty will help you feel at home within our community of researchers.
