Whether you are a faculty member, postgraduate or student...
if you have done, or are in the process of doing, research that is concerned with gender, women or feminism...
...we want you to contribute a poster for the NVFAD.
The more posters we have the better.
This is a way to tell other scholars at Warwick more about your work.
Don't be put off if you haven't made a poster before or don't have a lot of time. We're not looking for perfection and there is information below that will make poster-making simple.
If you aren't able to come to the NFVAD, consider sending a poster in your stead.
This will enable colleagues to find out about your research and contact you after the event.
Comments from 2007 NVFAD participants who made posters:
"It was my first time to make a poster! Template idea was excellent. Didn't take long to do and was good experience for future posters."
"They were a great idea. Obviously very popular. Effective way of spreading information about your research."
"I got feedback which will help me in future in getting more focused."
"Was beneficial to my thinking about my research and letting others know about it."
If you already have a poster of your work (current or previous) → feel free to recycle it! See information at the end for details of who to get in touch with and what to do with your poster.
If you DO NOT have a poster (or are a little confused about what it should involve) → take a look at posters from last year for ideas, and read the following:
Simplest:Use the Poster-pro forma and instructions that you can download as a word document. Fill it in, and you will have made a poster.If your research doesn't fit this poster format, why not try using the even simpler basic poster pro-forma
More information on Posters:
A poster is a visual representation of your research.
- It can be as big as A0 (information on paper size)
- Font size should be at least 16 point. But can be as big as you like.
- You can use any materials you like (printed paper, photos, pictures, graphs, found objects...)
- The more graphics the better!
A poster usually includes the following sections (often others as well):
- Title of research project
- Researcher's name/department/status
- Research Objectives (or introduction)

What to do next.
If you intend to bring a poster to the NVFAD please let Nickie Charles know by email.
You will be able to mount your poster in Ramphal R0.3-4 from 9am (you will have half an hour before the NVFAD begins).
If you are not going to be able to attend the NVFAD we will mount your poster for you so long as you have delivered it to the Sociology department by the previous day and have let us know that this is happening.
