Need some help working out your methodology? Want to learn more about the Royal Geographical Society and it’s research groups? Or just want to meet some other doctoral students and chat through your ideas? This workshop is designed to help those students at the beginning of their PhD or MA journeys to think critically about their methods and methodology and offer a space to meet and chat with other students in an informal atmosphere in the beautiful RGS building in central London.


  • Introduction to methodology & methods
  • Key Note Speaker – Dr Erin Sanders-McDonagh, Middlesex University. Erin is committed to research that has an impact and she has experience using a multitude of methods in extremely diverse contexts.
  • Innovative research methods & methodologies; visual, participatory, feminist approaches. This will be run as an active participatory session, encouraging students in thinking about the methods that they might use, but also to innovate and make them effective for the often unique situations encountered in ‘real life’ research.
  • Be Critical!- Round table exercise designed to get participants to be critical of the research methods that they use and the implications they have on themselves and their participants. When Methods Go Wrong – a session to explore flexibility, lone research safety and to pull from the organisers own experiences to share “lessons learnt”.
