The CCRI Postgraduate Winter School provides a friendly and supportive environment for postgraduate students working in rural research to present their work and receive constructive feedback from CCRI staff. It is also an opportunity for postgraduate students from all over UK to meet up and exchange ideas.
With a backdrop of rapid technological evolution and social transformations in rural areas, as well as policy uncertainties and environmental transitions, this constellation of change is altering many facets of the rural. The winter school is a chance to engage with new and established scholars about these changes and benefit from the expertise of CCRI's most recent research.
The number of places at this popular event is limited; we would encourage any students interested to register their interest in participating with CCRI's postgraduate leader, Matt Reed (firstname.lastname@example.org). The CCRI hosts and sponsors this event, but participants will need to provide their own transport and accommodation.
