Welcome to our sixth MITN newsletter. 

We hope you enjoyed our two cluster events last month! Have a look at the new webpage for PG/ECR MITN activities, we'd love to hear your feedback. Let us know if you would like to have a profile on the MITN website as a postgraduate or early career researcher.

If you would like us to publish something for you in the next newsletter, please send it to us by the 22nd of July.

Expression of Interest

for a new research cluster on

Workplace/professional discourse and identity 

Some potential areas: 
How does identity become relevant to the workplace and affect professional practice?
How does identity gets constructed and negotiated in professional contexts?
How can we study identity in a workplace context?  
Please email Christina (Warwick) for info and if you would like to coordinate the cluster from Monash.

Collaborative Translation Project: a Model for Inclusion

The Collaborative Translation project instigated by a group of MITN PG/ECRs has been awarded funding through the student-led scheme led by the Monash-Warwick Alliance.  

You may have a look at the project outline for more details.

If you are interested in learning how collaborative translation might benefit your own research projects, please contact Jessica or Gioia.
