PG Conference: Call for Abstracts

Bridging the gap between psychology and the social sciences

An ESRC Doctoral Training Centre student-led event

12th April 2019, University of Nottingham

Now available to register! Visit

We are organising a conference to bring together researchers from across the social sciences who contribute to our understanding of psychology. The aim is to share a variety of perspectives on psychology, both from within and outside the discipline itself, and discuss questions that are key to bridging the gap between psychology and the social sciences. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day, as well as a wine reception and an evening meal. 

We are inviting postgraduate students to present their research in a manner that addresses some of the issues involved in bridging the gap between psychology and the social sciences (impact, interdisciplinarity, methodology...). We are looking for social scientists who incorporate psychological perspectives into their research and for psychologists whose work has repercussions for other social sciences. We would love to hear from people who have either succeeded in bridging that gap or would like to but don't know how (and anything in between). 

If you are interested in giving a talk, please send your abstracts (250 words) to Eleonore Batteux ( before 14th December 2018. Please make the link between your research and the topic of the conference clear to us as we expect you to discuss it in your talk. Talks will be 10 minutes long with 5-10 minutes for questions. Travel bursaries of up to £100 are available for external speakers. Registrations (free) will open in January 2019 for all postgraduate students.


Let us know if you have any questions. Looking forward to your submissions!
