Defending your ideas and responding to critique

Defending your ideas and responding to critique

These sessions are designed for HDR students and will cover a range of topics that will assist them to develop as researchers.

This session will offer some strategies on how to deal with critique and, specifically, how to use it to sharpen your perspective, your theoretical grounding and methodological choices. It will be an especially hands-on session, in which you can gain some practice in rigorously dealing with critique and with defending and developing your ideas.

The session will be facilitated by Dr Maria Hynes from the School of Sociology.
