Constructing a Sociological Career: Developing an Academic Profile as an Emerging Scholar

Time: 10am-4pm, 20th February 2015

Location: Manchester Museum

The Sociological Review is pleased to announce the first in a series of events directed at Early Career researchers in sociology, anthropology and other cognate research fields. This daylong workshop focuses on developing an academic profile as an emerging scholar. In particular, it will encourage you to develop a narrative about who you are and want to be as a scholar and to apply this in thinking about the academic CV and covering letter.

We have two great contributors to the day: Professor Professor Pat Thomson (University of Nottingham) who writes the Patter blog on research education and academic writing – where the inspiration for the focus on constructing academic careers originated — and Professor Rolland Munro (University of Leicester), who has acted as mentor to many recent fellows at The Sociological Review. We will also be putting to work her advice in thinking about how you communicate your developing academic profile in the academic CV and covering letter.

This will take place at Manchester Museum, 10am-4pm 20th February 2015 to coincide with The Sociological Review Annual Lecture which will take place from 5pm. The workshop (including refreshments and lunch) are free, but places are limited to 25, so book early!

We’re now fully booked. Please use the Eventbrite page and we’ll add you to the waiting list. We take the popularity to mean we should definitely run a similar event in the future!
