This group does not have any discussions yet.
haven't had a proper shower since Nov, I have to kill my own food, harvest my own water, and some of the neighborhood kids still scream 'WHITE MAN!!' when they see me; but other than that, fieldwork after six months has been a blast! How are all of you doing?
Hey! Couldn't agree more with Michael!
greetings! STAR 1 this year was truly an amazing event. Glad to have spent quality time with such fantastic, talented people from St. Andrews and Aberdeen! Good luck as you finalise your visas and pack for the adventure of a lifetime. We'll be in touch, for sure!

Changing the World - A conference for early career researchers – Open Call for Papers and PostersUniversity of Glasgow, 7 November 2011The aim of this conference is to facilitate discussion and raise awareness of the wide variety of research going on at Glasgow. Those presenting will gain valuable experience in communicating their work to a non-expert audience. Fingers crossed this may even result in some new friendships and new collaborations. Other universities already host local conferences like this and we felt that it was about time Glasgow had a similar event. Postgraduates and post-docs based at Glasgow University are invited to submit empirical and theoretical papers from across the full spectrum of science and the humanities . We would particularly encourage contributions that reflect on the impact your research may have, even if you are at an early stage of your research. This event is supported by Vitae (http://www.vitae.ac.uk/), Glasgow University Postgraduates Society and a Glasgow University Research Initiatives Grant.
