DATE: 7 Dec 2009

Postgraduate and Newer Researchers' 4th Annual Conference
Challenging Higher Education: Newer researchers' perspectives

Now in its sixth year, the Society for Research into Higher Education (SRHE) are pleased to invite you to participate in the SRHE Postgraduate and Newer Researchers' (PGNR) Annual Conference. This one-day conference precedes the SRHE annual conference and will be held at the famous Celtic Manor, close to Newport in South Wales. The PGNR Conference is the main annual event of the SRHE Newer Researchers' Network.

This conference aims to provide a supportive, capacity-building event for newer researchers in higher education. As well as the opportunity to present your work in a range of formats, opportunities will be provided for chairing papers, involvement in the panel discussions, and a range of networking events. This event is open to a broad community, including those in the early stages of a research career in HE, those currently studying in the field and those who may have more experience but are new to the issues in HE research and want to find out more.
This Conference will be chaired by Dr Arwen Raddon from the University of Leicester (UK) with cochairs Mr Romulo Pinheiro from the University of Oslo (Norway) and Mr Patrick Baughan from City University London (UK). Dr Raddon is the Convenor of the SRHE Newer Researchers Network and a member of the SRHE Research and Development Committee. Romulo Pinheiro and Patrick Baughan are Co-convenors of the Network.

The theme of this year's conference again draws from that of the annual SRHE Conference, which is held directly following this event. However, there will be additional areas of discussion, debate and reflection to this theme within the context of postgraduate and newer researchers' experience.
