CeMoRe Annual Research Day
Date: 17 May 2006 Time: 9.30am to 5.00pm
Venue: Institute for Advanced Studies, Meeting Rooms 2/3
CeMoRe Research Day
The aim of this annual event is to bring together a wide range of 'mobilities' researchers from a variety of Lancaster departments to present short papers on their current research and to stimulate new discussions. In doing so we hope to both become better informed about the range of mobilities research undertaken at Lancaster, and to generate new collaborations and research ideas.
Contributions are welcome from staff and research students from all faculties, and on any aspect of 'mobilities' research. The remit of the Centre is very wide - if you are not sure whether what you do is relevant please see the CeMoRe website or speak to one of the Board Members
If you don't have research to present but would like to find out more about mobilites research at Lancaster please note the date in your diary.
If you would like to be added to the CeMoRe email list please contact Pennie Drinkall.
If you have any queries or suggestions regarding the research day please do get in touch.
