methods@manchester – “What is…? talks”: Upcoming events

A regular series of lunch-time talks which provide short, accessible introductory guides to key research methods. These talks are ideal for research students — or their supervisors — who want to find out what the method does and whether it might be useful in their research. They will also be of interest to any member of staff who is curious to find out about a new method.

The talks take place every Thursday from 1 – 2pm in room 1.69/1.70, first floor, Humanities Bridgeford Street. There is no need to book, you can just turn up on the day. All are welcome.

The next What is…? talk will take place on 30 January 2014: Path Analysis (for people who hate statistics) by Dr Pauline McGovern, CCSR
