______________________________________________________________

Hello!

Are you an MA, MSc, PhD or Postdoc interested in social policy? If so,  
come to the annual Social Policy Association Postgraduate (SPA)  
Conference, in Edinburgh 2nd July 2009. This year’s theme is,

‘Social Policy Futures: research experiences, practices and developments’

See http://www.social-policy.com/documents/SPA_PG_conference.pdf for a  
full programme of events


This one day event, run by SPA and SWAP (Social Work and Policy) will  
provide an opportunity for social policy postgraduates to think about  
social policy futures. There will be opportunity for delegates to:

•	present their own research to peers in social policy
•	reflect on current and developing research methodologies
•	discuss the information seeking and research behaviour and  
experiences of young scholars such as themselves
•	network with other social policy postgraduate researchers
•	take away ideas and resources for learning and teaching


All are welcome to attend the event, which will include presentations  
from delegates (see below for abstract submission details). Delegates  
can present any aspect of their postgraduate research, from  
reflections and experiences, to tentative analyses and findings.

Presenters must be new or existing SPA members. You don’t have to be a  
member to come to the event, so we want to invite everyone to come  
along and see what the SPA offers.

There will also be presentations and discussion from leading experts  
in the postgraduate learning experience:

Dr. Joanna Newman Head of Higher Education, The British Library,  
‘Spotlight on 'Generation Y''. A major new study into the information  
seeking and research behaviour of young scholars’

Dr. Rose Wiles ESRC National Centre for Research Methods, outlining  
the resources provided by the Centre for Research Methods including  
some of the innovative methods being developed there.

Dr. Rebecca Johnson, Subject Centre for Social Policy and Social Work  
- learning and teaching materials for social policy educators  
(http://www.swap.ac.uk)

More speakers to be confirmed!
