Exit Velocity: Supercharge your academic career

June 24, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 7:00 pm

FREE but registration essential.

A conference for Doctoral Candidates and Early Career Researchers in The Arts and Creative Industries

Speakers to include:

Professor Anthony Woodman (Senior Pro Vice Chancellor, Research and Enterprise, University of West London), Matthew Dodd (Head of Speech Programming, BBC Radio 3), Lydia Fraser-Ward (Creative director, Fantasy High Street), Professor Katie Normington (Vice Principal (Staffing) and Dean of Arts and Social Science, Royal Holloway University of London), Dr Pete Mitchell (Research Fellow, Geography, University of Sussex), Suzie Leighton (Director, The Culture Capital Exchange) and Professor Jeremy Strong (Professor of literature & film, University of West London).

In an increasingly challenging academic climate, new scholars are expected to develop and disseminate high quality research outputs, secure external funding, and commence fresh responsibilities in teaching and administration. In many respects it has never been a tougher time to embark on a university career. Yet there are also considerable opportunities for individuals prepared to develop their work and careers in innovative ways. Exit Velocity offers the opportunity to hear from those who have forged successful careers and to meet the next generation of leading academics in your field.

This event at the University of West London brings together graduate students completing their doctorates and early career researchers in an interdisciplinary conference to present their own research and engage with leading academics who have shaped their careers in interesting and dynamic ways. Highlights include: a panel discussion on partnerships and collaboration; speed networking; a panel addressing the ‘portfolio career’; subject specific presentations; and a drinks reception to close.
