Research Conferences

Research conferences at BGU are wide-ranging with topics relevant to our three academic schools

Bishop Grosseteste University is the ideal setting for academics and their partners to create, share and develop their research through our hosting of national and international conferences. Themes of our conferences are wide-ranging, reflecting the collective expertise of our staff, with topics pertinent to our three schools, in Humanities, Social Sciences and Teacher Education, as well as the promotion of interdisciplinary research.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events, to join our vibrant research community.


The Monster Conference

(29 June -1 July 2018)

Confirmed Keynotes: Angela Wright (University of Sheffield), Damian Walford Davies (Cardiff University), Marc Hanheide (University of Lincoln)

The Monster Conference is three-day an interdisciplinary conference, hosted by Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, celebrating the afterlife and reception of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in the year of the 200th anniversary of its publication. The continuing fascination with all things Monsters is partly due to the critical and popular reception of Shelley’s creature, termed a “new species” by its ambitious but over-reaching creator who thinks of himself as a scientist. The creature’s life is bodged from the start. The goal of this conference is to examine the legacy of Shelley’s novel as well as the different incarnations of monsters in contemporary research and teaching contexts. Attempting to explain the appeal of the story offers a unique opportunity to promote dialogue between disciplines.

If you have any questions regarding the conference, please email Dr Sibylle Erle on sibylle.erle@bishopg.ac.uk.

EMDoc Conference: Impact and exchange – making connections beyond the academy

September 19th 2018, Bishop Grosseteste University

Calling all doctoral students

We would like to invite you* to attend the 2018 East Midlands Doctoral Network (EMDoc) Postgraduate Research Conference at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln on Wednesday 19thSeptember 2018. EMDoc consists of nine universities who are keen to work collaboratively to share best practice, resources and insights into doctoral research across all disciplines.

The theme for the 2018 conference is ‘Impact and Exchange – making connections beyond the academy’, a chance to reflect on how your research can lead to wider impact and opportunities for knowledge exchange beyond the university. All research has the potential to create applications and impact beyond the immediate context in which it is developed, a feature which is becoming an increasingly central aspect of all research activity. Impact and exchange potential within a research project can be planned from the beginning of the process or can emerge in unexpected places as you develop your thinking. You can consider this theme within your work by reflecting on the potential for knowledge exchange, the nature of potential impacts, or a discussion of the stakeholders and/or policymakers you hope your research will reach and influence at any scale from the individual, through organisational level to national and international.

This supportive and formative conference will be hosted at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln and is a great opportunity for you to discuss and promote your research as well as meet and network with other doctoral students from across the East Midlands.

The conference also offers you a chance to present your research in one of three different formats. These are longer presentations (10 mins), posters and a three minute thesis (3MT) competition, where you are challenged to outline the nature and relevance of your research in three minutes.

The conference will cover a broad range of perspectives on the theme aiming to appeal to researchers from across the full range of disciplines.

International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education

12th and 13th April 2019, Bishop Grosseteste University

We are living in the Anthropocene and climate change is the most pressing contemporary environmental challenge globally. Both adapting to and mitigating the far reaching effects of climate change are crucial if we are going to overcome the challenges it poses.  Education is among the most efficient tools we have to effectively deal with the scientific/ technical, economic, cultural and human developmental dimensions of climate change and its politicisation. Education in all its forms plays a crucial role, globally and locally, in engaging and empowering people to act to alleviate the impacts of the climate change. The importance of this role is recognized, at least in spirit if not yet by viable actions, in the 2015 Paris Agreement (via the Paris Committee on Capacity Building), the ongoing UNESCO Education for Sustainable Development Global Action Programme, and in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (especially SDG 13, Climate Action”), as well as in many national and regional climate change and disaster risk management policies and strategies.

Even though education is a key element which can be deployed in fostering climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, there is a paucity of events where a special focus to education is given. In order to fill in this gap, the International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education is being organised by Bishop Grosseteste University (UK), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information Programme.

This symposium is aimed at those working in, or concerned with, education and climate change. It provides an opportunity to showcase projects, approaches and activities that investigate or utilise education as a means to mitigate or adapt to climate change. It aims to provide a platform for critical perspectives on climate change and the role of education. The conference aims to facilitate networking and the development of partnerships, and promote collaborative efforts for those using education as a tool to overcome the challenges of climate change.
