Do you want to give a webinar on social capital?
Our webinar series has been running since April 2020 with presentations by prominent scholars and practitioners including Prof Robert Putnam, Prof Eric Uslaner, Prof Lindon Robison, Prof Daniel Aldrich and many more.
Our webinar series provides a platform for people to share their research or their practical applications of social capital with an international audience.
We welcome proposals for presentations.
Topics can relate to any aspect or application of social capital, including theoretical or methodological issues. It could relate to your current or past scholarly inquiry, or for practical applications, it could relate to your past or current work.
- Academic and research
- Practical and industry
Presentations normally take the form of a lecture with questions after the presentation. This is flexible, and we are open to a variety of formats (e.g. lecture, interview format, workshop, etc). Or you may consider facilitating a session.
The sessions are held on Zoom and you are welcome to share your screen for PowerPoint slides or other visuals.
Presentation length is typically approximately 30 to 50 minutes, with 20 to 30 minutes for questions and discussion after.
Are you a PhD or Masters Student?
Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defence, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.
Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program
In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.
