Brown Bag Lunch

What is a Brown Bag Lunch?

A Brown Bag Lunch is a loosely organised meeting, aimed at capturing issues of current interest for students working in the development sector. Each meeting includes a 5-15 minutes ‘kick-start’ presentation followed by 50 minutes of discussion. 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 and participants bring their lunch along.

What are the topics?

Our Brown Bag Seminars focus on the more practical aspects of doing research. This may involve discussions around research methods and software, of particular studies or data fragments, conceptual ideas or strategies for fieldwork research. Brown Bags are a way for students to gain insights into new and different ways of doing research by hearing what is and is not working for your peers.
