HDR Summer School 2013
15 - 17 February 2013
Summer school is an opportunity for Faculty of Arts and Education Higher Degree by Research candidates to immerse themselves in a research environment from Friday morning until Sunday lunch time.
In 2013, the format will differ slightly from previous years. All participants will be asked to give a two minute presentation of their work to the relevant school groups. These will be informal oral presenations with no powerpoint. Only late phase candidates will be invited to reply to the call for papers to apply to undertake a 20 minute presentation.
The poster session will be expanded and available for all candidates to showcase their work. This opportunity will be of great benefit to candidates who wish to share their work but don't have the opportunity to present. A poster presentation allows your peers to take their time with the information presented and ask you questions at greater length. It also enables you to spend more time with the colleagues who are most interested in your field of research. You can download tips for assisting with your poster presentation.
Candidates are asked to sign up for their preferred workshops at the time of registration. Changes to preferences can be made using the same registration system
There are ten reading groups which will accommodate all participants in small working groups. The reading groups have been organised by members of the Faculty to cover a range of different interests. Each reading group has a theme and a short reading or reading/s that all people attending the group will be expected to have read. Numbers for each reading group are small to encourage discussion and engagement within the group. You can select your preferred group during the registration process
These changes are all reflected in the program

What does the notion of the imagination mean in the everyday world of university research? Is all research an act of the imagination? What might it mean to globalise the research imagination? In this talk, I will illustrate the ways in which the imagination is mobilised in (globalising) research practice by sharing with you the thoughts of highly imaginative scholars from philosophy, sociology, anthropology, geography, education and politics. These are Arjun Appadurai, Raewyn Connell, Doreen Massey, Aihwa Ong, Fazal Rizvi and Saskia Sassen. Their thoughts are derived from the interviews we conducted with them for our book Globalizing the Research Imagination (2008), Routledge. These scholars’ thinking on globalization is influential and inspirational. They provide compelling and creative insights into what it might mean to globalize the research imagination. In particular, we will highlight their views on what the research imagination is and what globalisation means for research students and their supervisors.Jane Kenway is a Professorial Fellow with the Australian Research Council, a Professor in the Education Faculty at Monash University and an elected Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences; Australia. Her research expertise is in socio-cultural studies of education in the context of wider social and cultural change, with a particular focus on power and politics. She has won many prestigious grants for her research, the latest being for the project Elite independent schools in globalising circumstances: a multi-sited global ethnography (Australian Research Council Discovery Grant 2010-2015 ). Her more recent jointly edited books are Globalising the Research Imagination, (2009) Routledge, Innovation and Tradition: the Arts and Humanities in the Knowledge Economy (2004) and Globalising Education: policies, pedagogies and politics (2005) both Peter Lang. Her more recent jointly written books are Masculinity Beyond the Metropolis (Palgrave, 2006), Haunting the Knowledge Economy (Routledge 2006) and Consuming Children: Education-Advertising-Entertainment, (Open University Press, 2001).

What's Up, Doc? What research on doctoral education says about your condition and its prognosis
This presentation shows and discusses a selection of Terry Evans’s research on doctoral education conducted over the past twenty years. The presentation has two main aims: one is to share some research findings about doctorates that will help candidates understand their place in the Australian doctoral community and what this involves; the other is to illustrate how different research methods can be used to record and understand the complexity of doctoral candidates’ and graduates’ lives.Terry Evans is a Professor in the School of Education at Deakin University. His current research and publication focuses on doctoral education, although healso has a longstanding record in open and distance education, including being a co-director of the first Master of Distance Education in the world offered by Deakin University and the University of South Australia. He has been a Chief Investigator on several Australian Research Council projects, including four on doctoral education and four on distance education. He has also been a Chief Investigator on three AusAID-funded projects in PNG on teachers' professional development and distance education.
