Come along to this session of short ‘lightning’ talks by postgraduate researchers at the University of Manchester and MMU, from across the social sciences.
These talks are part of the Mundane Methods event within the ESRC Festival of Social Science 2016.

- Laura Fenton (Sociology and the Morgan Centre, UoM): Moving beyond the spectacle of drunkenness: Researching the uses and meanings of alcohol in everyday life
- Eric Lepp (Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute, UoM): Sitting side-by-side sharing an experience helps break down power and privilege clouding researcher-researched relationships and initiates connection through unscripted conversation
