CCRI METHOD 2022 Conference Abstract Writing Workshop

8 June 2022 @ 10:00 - 12:00

The CCRI METHOD 2022 Conference will take place on September 21st and 22nd, remotely via Zoom, and with a conference base room on campus.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 4th July 2022 to: culture-creativity-pgr@shu.ac.uk


To support participation in METHOD 2022, and professional development in abstract writing, we are offering a pre-conference workshop.


At this session we will discuss:

  • Why we do a conference on research METHOD and what you can get out of it
  • Ideas for presentation topics and interesting angles on your research process
  • How to write a good abstract
  • How we will support development of your abstract
  • Hints and tips for preparing and delivering your presentation


About METHOD 2022

Since 2015, the CCRI PGR team has delivered an annual conference for PGRs and ECRs on the alternating themes of research METHOD and research IMPACT.  We are delighted to open the call for abstracts for this year’s conference: METHOD 2022.  Our conferences are warm and enjoyable, offering a supportive environment to practice conference presentation and try out new ideas.


Every researcher uses methods to gain new insights and must be able to articulate their process in a way that others inside and outside of their field can understand. METHOD offers a multi-disciplinary event that centres on the process of inquiry rather than results.  At METHOD, we create a context where the challenges, critical thinking and creativity embedded in research methods and research process are made tangible and accessible to a wide community of researchers.


Examples of topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The philosophical problems of inquiry in your discipline.
  • Why your chosen methods are valuable to your inquiry and their heritage
  • The challenges of practice-led enquiry
  • Researcher identities and the blurry terrain of researcher and researched
  • Dealing with ‘failure’ and contingency planning
  • Understanding what your ‘data’ or source material is and how to analyse it
  • Researching in difficult environments and/or challenges in getting access
  • The impact of the pandemic on research sites or process
  • Researching in analogue or digital ‘spaces’
  • Ethical challenges of research

To prepare for attendance, please do prepare a draft of your abstract, or even just some rough ideas about the topic you want to present on.  This will help us to help you to shape your individual submission and/or help you target it to the conference theme at the workshop.


Don’t worry if you don’t yet have an idea of a topic for your presentation – come along anyway!  The workshop will help you identify an interesting angle on your research process to share at the conference.


This session is for ALL SHU PGRs and ECRs if they plan to submit an abstract and/or to attend the METHOD 2022 conference.  CCRI PGRs are expected to present at METHOD 2022 and are therefore strongly encouraged to attend this training
