The Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) conference is an opportunity to share and discuss the circumstances collaborative students meet as a new generation of researchers. Based in research-led, professional environments we collaborate with a diverse range of institutions and stakeholders to communicate our research engagingly to a wide audience. While this position opens up new opportunities, it also offers challenges and raises questions. The 2018 conference will explore the networks in which we find ourselves as collaborative students; issues of hierarchy; relationships and innovation between disciplines; institutions and ways of knowing.

Our speakers will present on topics which examine the challenges, possibilities and questions that arise when positioned in a liminal space between universities and cultural institutions. Presentations will examine the possibilities of impact as a CDP student both in relation to their research and their own positionality. Speakers will draw on their own experiences in order to provoke positive and challenging dialogues concerning the nature of the CDP.
