Charting a Career Path: Sharing the Learning and Lessons

November 2 - November 3

£45 - £216

The Regional Studies Association welcomes submissions of abstracts to our annual Student and Early Career conference to be held in Newcastle, UK, in November 2017. This conference aims to provide PhD students and early career researchers opportunities to present their work, receive feedback, network, collaborate and socialise with others working in regional studies and related fields.

The conference will bring together a range of international participants from different disciplines to present and debate their work in a welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment. Participants will be able to enrich their engagement with contemporary research in the field and share the learning and lessons on charting a career path in the context of changes in the academic landscape and labour market in institutional and funding terms.

This conference will be held as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations of the Centre for Urban Regional Development Studies (CURDS). CURDS, has been at the forefront of international academically rigorous and policy relevant research in urban and regional change, development and policy since 1977 and has trained a number of leading researchers, practitioners and policy makers in the field. The RSA is very pleased to be working with CURDS for many years and to celebrate its many achievements in 2017.

Editors of the RSA journals will be present.
