Midlands Graduate School Student Conference 2020

We regret to announce that the MGS Student Conference is cancelled, due to the current COVID19 pandemic.

The ESRC Midlands Graduate School Conference 2020 will be held on the 24th June at the University of Birmingham.

Call for Papers

The conference is free to attend, and postgraduate students and early-career researchers are encouraged to participate. To ensure that all candidates across institutions, disciplines, and research areas feel welcome to present their work, we have elected to proceed without a set theme. Papers on any aspect of applicants' research which they find particularly interesting or would like to share with fellow researchers are therefore welcome.

For any further information, including abstract length, deadlines for submission and review dates of abstracts, please see the Call for Papers.

Keynote speaker: Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford

Registration: 10-10.30am.

Lunch: 1-2pm

Conference will end at approximately 5pm

Lunch and refreshments are included.


The conference is free to attend. Travel costs will be covered for ESRC MGS presenters and attendees from the universities of Warwick, Leicester, Nottingham, Loughborough, Aston, and Birmingham.

Please see the Eventbrite page to register your attendance.

Following registration, please email with any dietary requirements.
