SSEAC 2014 Postgraduate Retreat
Working Across Disciplines
16-19 November 2014
Wangat Lodge, Dungog, NSW
Approaching research questions from an interdisciplinary perspective is becoming more and more important for researchers in all fields, particularly in a region like Southeast Asia. But what does this mean in practice?
In the second SSEAC postgraduate retreat, you will be given the opportunity to think about what it means to work across disciplines. There will be activities to encourage you to think about your own and other research questions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. In addition, there will be practical workshops on how to present research to a non-specialist audience and how to write a grant proposals.
