Event description

Description

PhD-level research in humanities

Presented by :
Dr Alex Reynolds
Dr Toby Bennett

What are the expectations of scholarship in the humanities? What is an original contribution to knowledge? What does a finished PhD look like? What isn’t a PhD?

This session will be useful for current and prospective PhD students pursuing humanities research – broadly speaking, historical, critical, interpretive or comparative approaches to the study of human cultures. We will explore the concept of academic rigour and what constitutes an original contribution to knowledge in doctoral study. The distinction between theory and practice led PhDs will be discussed.

Main Objectives:

  • What PhD level academic rigour looks like
  • What an original contribution to knowledge might be
  • Theory and practice led PhDs
