Call for proposals opens for annual Graduate Studies conference

Brock graduate students can now submit research proposals to present at the 14th annual Mapping the New Knowledges (MNK) Graduate Student Research Conference this spring.

Master’s and doctoral students, at any stage of their research, have until Feb. 19 to apply to give either an oral or poster presentation at the one-day conference on Thursday, April 11.

Presented by the Faculty of Graduate Studies in partnership with the Graduate Students’ Association, the MNK conference takes place from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Plaza Building and Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex.  

“For many students, MNK is their first opportunity to share their research. It helps graduate students to feel connected to the larger Brock community,” said Diane Dupont, Interim Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

“Brock prides itself on being an institution focused on transdisciplinary studies. This conference provides our graduate students the chance to see what other interesting research is happening outside of their discipline, and perhaps inspires them to look at their own projects from another lens.”

As part of the call for proposals, students are required to include a maximum 200-word description of their research in plain language appropriate for review by a multidisciplinary committee.

The MNK event allows students to gain research presentation experience in a welcoming and transdisciplinary atmosphere.
