Outcome: Project Proposal (trim 4)

Outcome: Thesis (trim 4 & 5)

This is the page for the Graduate Research Seminar 2021-2022 run by Steve Rushton, Natasha Soobramanien and Marloes de Valk.

The days set aside for the seminar will be devoted to achieving specific outcomes which further the research and completion of the proposal and thesis. This page will be used to upload information on your Project Proposal and Thesis and to serve as an ongoing record of research.

How The Sessions Are Structured

The sessions will be for all second year media students: Y2LB and Y2XPub. These will take the form of all-day workshops which will take place every other Thursday. The outcome of each session will be published on the wiki (or Pad or PubPub document) and reviewed by the group. Sessions will include group work, individual work and individual tutorials with Marloes, Natasha & Steve. Achievable aims will be set ahead of the next session.
