On behalf of the Rhodes University Postgraduate Liaison Sub-Committee, we would like to invite you to the 3rd Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference to be held at Rhodes University from the 14th – 16th September, 2011. The theme of this year’s Conference will be: Postgraduate Students in Research… A Way Forward.
The Conference is open to other Universities in the Eastern Cape this year hence participation is invited from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, University of Fort Hare, Walter Sisulu University and Rhodes University.
We are putting together an interactive Conference across different faculties and research areas. It is our aim that each student delegate will have the opportunity to communicate their research, at whatever stage it is, to a broad range of postgraduate researchers in clear, understandable language without compromising on the quality of the work. This will present a platform for useful dialogue and cohesion among the next generation of researchers. This Conference hopes to unveil the societal relevance and some of the long term values of the different research postgraduate students are involved in.
Please join us at Rhodes University, a place where leaders learn, and enjoy the rich culture of Grahmastown.
