A Festive Research Seminar

By December 28, 2018 January 24th, 2019 Academic, Blog

In December, IPM hosted one of its regular research seminars and – being December – it was a suitably festive affair with mulled wine & mince pies to hand.

Noggin has been an IPM approved partner since April, but I’ve never managed to get to a research seminar before … so didn’t know quite what to expect.

The content of the seminar was naturally academic, documenting research from various projects. The diversity of content was particularly striking, from describing places through social media in Thailand, an insightful presentation on the dangers & consequences of overtourism, to a selection of talks on religion, historical culture and spooky events in Manchester.

Without a doubt, the talks were “diverse”.

Presentations were strictly limited to 10 minutes, so the talks were short & focused. It was a great way to digest lots of information and get a good overview of various projects through an afternoon.

Unfortunately it looks like I’ll be missing the next couple of seminars, but the content was enjoyable and interesting – albeit quite diverse – and I will want to attend more.
