PhD Underlying Research Questions

10:22, Wed 31 Oct 2018

This is the recording of the class I delivered to the First Year PhD Training Module on Monday 22nd October 2018. The session was on how to conceptualise your PhD's underlying research questions. It is quite short, because most of the two-hour session was devoted to me talking with the class, and that sort of conversation cannot now be posted unproblematically under new GDPR legislation.

PhD Vivas - October 2018

09:13, Wed 10 Oct 2018

This is the recording of the class I delivered to the First Year PhD Training Module on Monday 8th October 2018. The session was on what to expect from a PhD viva.

Unfortunately, the recording equipment proved to be somewhat temperamental, and it cut out with 20-odd minutes of the class still to go. The bit of the recording that is missing is the part where I run through the different recommendations that the examiners are allowed to give and the University's guidance notes for what examiners are required to make a judgement on. However, the links to all of these pages are on the module webpage next to the description of this week's session, so if you want a reminder you can always follow the links from there.

The Colonial Hangover Project 2017

14:54, Wed 25 Jan 2017

Along with my Department's Widening Participation Officer, Shahnaz Akhter, I launched the Colonial Hangover project at a Schools Day event we ran for Year 12 students on January 17th 2017. The project will run for the whole year and will invite the participating students to reflect on the images of empire that they continue to find around them on a day-to-day basis. It picks up on an increasing sense that the British Empire might well have been formally disbanded, but that assumptions about empire continue to shape our everyday experiences. This has perhaps never been more amply demonstrated than in the vision of Britain's place in the world that animated the Leave campaign at the 2016 EU referendum and that now provides the dominant imagery for Theresa May's preferred account of what a post-Brexit Britain might look like.

The Art of Writing and Note Taking in Politics

11:42, Thu 19 Jan 2017

How do you write? What do you look for when you’re reading an article? What methods do you have to take notes? We spend the majority of our time doing these things, yet very rarely get the opportunity to talk about them.

Professor Matthew Watson and PhD Student Javier Moreno Zacares talk about their - spoiler alert: quite different - methods of writing and note taking.
