    • Have you ever wondered why one article really engages whereas another just seems to provides information and an argument? Have you wondered how to try and develop your publications to make them more appealing for people to read? Karl has written an article exploring these problems that also suggests that research problems need to be more firmly developed to drive research forwards. This is intended to be an interactive and useful event that should provide you space to discuss your own research problems and puzzles and for that reason places are limited - it is open to all staff and PhD candidates, if there are MA students keen to apply for a PhD please email and if there is space we will accommodate them.
    • Please email to reserve your place.
