Gregynog Hall, near Newtown, Wales
3rd – 7th October 2016
Leader: Michael Woods
This year’s ESRS Autumn School examines the theme of Researching Globalization in a Rural Context, led by Michael Woods and the European Research Council GLOBAL-RURAL project team from Aberystwyth University. The school will include talks by guest speakers (to be confirmed) on key aspects of globalization as experienced in rural contexts, including agri-food globalization, international migration, cultural globalization and responses to global environmental change; reading-based small-group discussion sessions on conceptual approaches to the study of globalization and how these may be applied in rural research; field visits in the local area; and workshops on research methods and dissemination, including doing field research in a different cultural context, research ethics, publishing in scientific journals, and dissemination using digital media. Participants will also be asked to submit a piece of writing from their own research in advance and will receive one-to-one feedback and guidance from a senior researcher. Thanks to support from the ESRS and ERC, the autumn school registration and accommodation is free of charge, but participants will be responsible for paying for their own travel to Newtown (2 hours by direct rail link from Birmingham Airport). Places are limited to a maximum of 20 participants.
To register please complete the form below, including a short summary of your research, and submit by Friday 8th July 2016.
