Pursuing Higher Research Degrees while balancing the demands of family life can be a precarious juggling act. It can also be an isolating experience if you don’t know many other people doing the same. Come to this workshop and meet other HDR student parents, share experiences, learn from people who have successfully navigated a path through postgraduate parenting (and have the battle scars to prove it), find out what support is available and make recommendations to improve the HDR student parent experience.

Dr Alessandro Nai (University of Sydney) - Rolling in the deep: How values and personality traits affect perceptions of electoral integrity
This research investigates the deep individual underpinnings that determine if and how citizens perceive elections in their country as "free and fair" and globally lacking manipulation and malpractice. More specifically, it aims to uncover how values and the Big Five personality traits affect how citizens perceive the conduct of elections. Understanding this is paramount for a full understanding of electoral dynamics, given that both values and personality traits have been shown to matter greatly for attitudes, opinions and perceptions.
