RiDNet Brown Bag Lunch Series

Brown Bag
Tuesday 1 November 2011

The Researchers in Development Network (RiDNet) invites PhD students and early career researchers across the disciplines to attend a Brown Bag Lunch Series designed to explore different methods of doing research in developing countries and to discuss ongoing research projects. Our Brown Bag Seminars will be held on every first Tuesday of each month, starting with the 1st of November.

What is a Brown Bag Lunch?

A Brown Bag Lunch is a loosely organised meeting, aimed at capturing issues of current interest.  Each meeting will include a 5-15 minutes ‘kick-start’ presentation followed by a 50 minutes discussion session. It is a great opportunity to network, to share concerns, and to discuss ongoing research.

Why is it called Brown Bag Lunch Series?

The seminars are held around lunchtime. Participants bring their lunch or tea along.

What are the topics?

Our Brown Bag Seminars will focus on the more practical aspects of doing research. This may involve the discussions of research methods and software, of particular studies or data fragments, conceptual ideas or strategies for fieldwork research. Gain insight into new and different ways of doing research by hearing what is and is not working for your peers.

Join us next week for an informal initial discussion on:
