Poster submissions

We invite participants at all university levels of study, to participate in the poster sessions of the conference. Please submit your posters to:

Scope for posters

A poster session is a graphic presentation of an authors' study. Findings are illustrated by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and a minimal amount of text through a poster-presentation format.  Based upon the conference themes noted under the paper submission, posters can be comprised of research ideas, new theoretical perspectives, and pilot data.  The primary difference between a poster submission and paper submission is the ‘completeness’ of the research. Posters are usually still in-progress and a great way to gain valuable insight from your peers, other researchers, and faculty experts.  We welcome your submission on one of the following themes:

1. Law, History, and Discourse 

2. Critical Pedagogies, Research, and Educational Sector Responses 

3. Social Work Theory, Praxis, and Programs 

4. Global Migration and Geography Studies 

5. Interdisciplinary, Intersectional, and Multisector Practitioner Approaches 

6. Societal and Group Responses, including Civic Organisation and Resistance 

Poster tips:

Your poster should answer the following questions and avoid acronyms and jargon: 

What is the research question, concern, or issue? Clear statements should convey the purpose of the research or topic. Why should I care? The significance of the topic is explained.
