Heads up about a networking event for Early Career Researchers on 20 January 2011...
"The first Blue Sock Salon took place in October 2009. Blue Sock is best described as an informal, research-focused away-day for early-career researchers (except it's in the evening, in the atmospheric environs of the Horse Hospital, and with the possibility of buying beer). Blue Sock features a baker's dozen of pecha-kucha presentations by your colleagues, some music, and space to mingle and swap ideas and experiences with A+H, SHS, SSEES, and Laws people you know (and probably some you don't know, and some you don't know you want to know...yet). The last Blue Sock spawned teaching and research collaborations, speaking invitations, and new friendships.
To be held on Thursday 20 January, 7pm (sharp)- 9.30pm (approx). For venue details etc, see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/language-culture/blue-sock.
This event is free to staff and postgrads in the Faculties of Arts and Humanities, Social & Historical Sciences, Laws, and SSEES at UCL. We need to ask you to register in advance (due to venue capacity and for catering). Please visit http://www.ucl.ac.uk/language-culture/blue-sock
