Graduate Research Conference at Kent Law School on 8/9 June

Postgraduate students will critically explore the ways in which research can challenge forms of power and injustice at Kent Law School’s third annual Graduate Research Conference.

The conference, ‘Dialogues and Networks: Responses and Challenges to Power and Injustice’, will be held at Eliot College on the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 June.

Kent LLM students and postgraduate research students from across the disciplines of law, humanities and social sciences, will deliver presentations in a series of five panels, enabling them to receive insightful and immediate feedback on their work in the ensuing lively and analytical debates. This year’s panel discussions are themed around:

  • Global Injustices and Responses
  • Responses to Financial Crises and Corporate Power
  • Beginning and End of Life Issues
  • International Conflict.
  • Gender and Sexuality

During the conference, Professor Indira Carr from the University of Surrey will deliver the annual Clive Schmitthoff Lecture. Her talk will examine how corporate social responsibility can be used as a tool to combat corruption. Opportunities for networking, including a conference dinner and an exhibition of academic posters, are also an integral part of the event, offering visitors a chance to participate in ongoing discussions about contemporary social injustice.

More details about the format of the event can be found in the Conference programme.

All students are welcome to attend. Further details are available on the conference’s Facebook page and via the @KLSPGConference Twitter account. Follow events on Twitter using the hashtag #klspgconference
