Lancaster University Sociology Department’s Intellectual Party Summer Conference 1st and 2nd July 2013
Lancaster’s seventh annual Intellectual Party/Summer Conference will be held on the 1st and 2nd of July 2013.
Lancaster’s Summer Conference offers you the opportunity to meet and collaborate with research students from around the world, to present your work in a friendly and encouraging environment, and to meet and engage with some of Lancaster’s renowned academic staff. Our Intellectual Party is more than just another conference - it combines academic challenge with a lot of fun as well!

In 2013 we will be holding our first ever ‘Three Minute Thesis’ competition with a grand prize up for grabs, as well as great runner up prizes too! You can find out more about the rules of the 'Three minute Thesis' competition here, or email Rachel Preston. If you think you would like try out a novel and fun way of communicating your research then get in touch.
As always there will be the option to play in the annual Summer Conference game of Floorball (don’t forget your trainers!) and as is customary, the two days will be brought to a close with a spectacular ‘Grand Finale’.
However, if you think that two days just might not be enough, we welcome you (for a few pounds more) to join us on a day’s excursion and 'Sociological Expedition' to the Lake District. You can sign up for the excursion when you register for the conference.
