University of Plymouth Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business 2020 Doctoral Conference

Conference theme: 

Research that Impacts Lives, Businesses and Societies

The conference builds on the 2019 theme which was concerned with promoting research and the researcher, by examining how the researcher can maximise research contributions within and beyond academia via the interplay of theory and practice, in addition to other ways of demonstrating impact.

The Doctoral Conference is an annual event organised by the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business which showcases the diversity of research in social sciences currently being undertaken by postgraduate students from Plymouth and other universities. It is held over two days each June.

The conference welcomes papers covering business and management in its broadest definition. The areas include, but are not restricted to:
