Introduction to Research Processes Course

19 October 2021, 18:00 EAT - 20:00 EAT

The British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA) is excited to announce the launch of a new year-long Introduction to Research Processes Course, to be held online between October 2021 and September 2022. The course is free and open to all BIEA members and affiliates, and will be particularly useful for graduates, postgraduates and postdoctoral researchers.

The course will include lectures by, and opportunities to interact with, experienced research scholars working across the humanities and social sciences in Africa. The course will provide experience-based guidance and advice on conducting research, from planning a research project, to considering issues such as ethics, developing and implementing methodological approaches, disseminating results and applying for grants. In addition to lectures and Q&A sessions, participants will be given suggested readings and gain an opportunity to network with postgraduate students and BIEA affiliates in a nurturing and supportive environment. For further information queries about the course, please get in touch with [email protected]

The outline for the Introduction to Research Processes Course can be found below. Speakers and lecture dates will be announced in advance of each month. We look forward to welcoming you to this important course – don’t forget to register here biea.ac.uk/welcome/IRP_course
