What's it about?

Postgraduates and Early Career researchers researching or interested in topics related to Coventry, and specifically Coventry as UK City of Culture 2021, are invited to attend an afternoon of discussion and information sharing. This informal event, hosted by the University of Warwick and Coventry University, will bring researchers together to respond to themes and ideas related to the central question.

"What does it mean for Coventry to be a City of Culture?"

What to expect?

The structure of the event will take the form of four provocations presented by Postgraduate Researchers and Early Career Researchers, each of which will have time allocated for discussion afterwards, and a fun breaktime activity half way through. Provocations will be three to five minutes long, comprising a theoretical perspective, question(s) and/or case study intended to provoke a broad discussion around the topic.
