Non-credit bearing Advanced Training workshops

These non-credit bearing workshops tend to take place in Term 3 and often run over a single day, although they may extend to 2 or 3 days depending on the subject matter.

The workshops will be open to all PhD students from the Social Sciences at Warwick and across the Midlands Graduate School ESRC DTP partner institutions. PhD students from across the UK may also apply to attend when the workshop is advertised via the NCRM. Each workshop will have its own registration of interest form to complete in order to request a place and these will be accessible via the timetable above. Due to high demand, no place will be guaranteed until it has been confirmed via an email from the Warwick ESRC DTC/P team.

The Ethnography Circle

The ESRC DTC at Warwick is also pleased to support The Ethnography Circle.

Full details of the Ethnography Circle programme for the 2019/20 academic year can be found at

The Circle is a series of informal, multidisciplinary discussions which alternate presentations by leading ethnographers with group sessions where participants reflect on their ethnographic research practices. The events are open to all and the series runs from November 2019 until April 2020.

Admission is free but space is limited. If you wish to join the group at one or all of these sessions, please reserve your place in advance by RVSP:
