A03 Humanities Building, University Park Campus
The process of writing a PhD thesis is a long and challenging process, spanning many years and vast amounts of information. Within most theses are hidden away smaller items of interest, which are often thought of as window dressing to the ‘proper’ research. It is these curios which this conference wishes to focus on; taking quirky ideas out of the curiosity cabinet, dusting them off and presenting them to you.
Speakers will consist of current University of Nottingham postgraduate students and keynote speaker, Nottingham Alumnus Matt Symonds, Editor of Current Archaeology.
