Higher Degrees by Research (HDR)

As a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) candidate, you should make yourself familiar with the resources provided by the UQ Graduate SchoolPrimarily you must be aware that your journey to conferral and graduation involves a number of stages. These stages are called milestones

2018 has seen the ascendance of post-truth politics, also known as post-factual and post-reality. Post-truth is opposed to the formal conventions of debate, the contestation of ideas and the falsifiability of theories and statements. In a post-truth era, what reigns supreme are fallacies, talking points, leaked information, and so-called fake news fuelled by unfettered social and traditional media, and a highly-polarised political spectrum.

What are the implications of post-truth to educational research that values social justice, ethical integrity, the search for the good of the community as well as that of the individual? How will research and its tenets of validity, reliability and trustworthiness respond to the challenges brought upon by a post-truth world?

The UQ School of Education’s Postgraduate Research Community and Griffith University’s RHD Community invite you to its 2018 joint conference in attempting to interrogate and reconcile research paradoxes where notions of justice, integrity and impact in an increasingly complex-post-truth world.

 

  • Presenting at a Conference workshop - TBC - details to come.
  • Call for abstracts - due Sunday 5 August
  • Abstract Writing workshop - Thursday 19 July 4:00pm - 5:00pm Room 506 Building 24
