Research culture

Research students are postgraduate members of the Transforming Cultures Research Centre and are invited to participate in the Centre's active series of seminars, workshops, colloquia and conferences. The Centre provides seminars and master-classes for higher degree research students, which focus on contemporary theoretical and methodological issues and are given by leading national and international scholars in the disciplines associated with Transforming Cultures (TfC). The TfC Management Board has a representative whose special responsibility is to liaise with research students about relevant seminars and to provide access to the funding that TfC provides to assist with conference travel. TfC also provides financial and other assistance for research students who arrange their own reading groups, symposia and conferences.
