Postgraduate Masterclasses


The IAS Masterclass provides an opportunity for postgraduate students and early career researchers to meet and discuss their research with a distinguished scholar who is visiting UWA.

Participants will present short papers within the framework of the stated topic, which will then be opened for discussion by the group. Places are available for those who wish to attend and participate in the discussion, but do not wish to give a paper.

IAS Masterclasses are cross-disciplinary and submissions are welcome across all relevant disciplines. Interested postgraduate students, early career researchers and academics from all Perth universities are invited to attend.

Masterclasses are free, but registration is essential. To register, select the masterclass listed below that you wish to attend.
