Call for Papers
The past few years have seen pressing topics discussed by the public on an unprecedented and global scale. People have relied on science, statistics, and numerous other disciplines to inform their choices as they attempt to navigate diverse issues and crises. From epidemiology to economics, safe distancing to the Spanish Flu, people around the world have wanted to know not just what to do, but why action was needed. As we move forward, the role of the expert continues to be of importance as the world seeks guidance through altered landscapes: in work, life, health and our physical environment. Does your research involve public engagement? Are you investigating a past public response, perhaps to science or government policy? Or maybe your work will one day be applied in a public setting? In whatever way your research intersects with ‘Engaging the Public’, Granite Symposium 2021 is looking for your paper. Postgraduate students are invited to submit an essay, review, analysis, or report around this topic. The chosen topic may or may not be related to your postgraduate research, and queries are welcome. Collaborative submissions are also welcome.
Open to submissions from all disciplines. All presenters will have their research published in the Symposium edition of Granite and we will be asking that they submit an article version in addition to presenting their paper at the virtual Granite Symposium on 22nd October 2021.
Deadline for manuscript submission is the 1st October 2021.
Papers are limited to 2000-2500 words excluding abstract, tables, figures and their descriptions and references. Abstracts should not exceed 200 words. Each presentation should last for a maximum of 20 minutes.
