Breaking Boundaries Conference 2022 is an annual arts, humanities, and social sciences conference hosted by and for postgraduate researchers. This year’s conference will take place in-person.

Date and Time: Wednesday 25 May 2022, 10:00 – 16:00

Venue: Doctoral Academy, Cardiff University, Friary House, Greyfriars Road, Cardiff, CF10 3AE

We invite all postgraduate researchers from GW4 universities (Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and Exeter), Cardiff Metropolitan University, and the University of South Wales to come together and share their research in a relaxed and cooperative environment. All arts, humanities, and social sciences disciplines are welcome and we especially welcome interdisciplinary presentations!

Our theme for this year is society, culture, and change. Times are changing and COVID-19 has exacerbated global rifts: interdependence, inequality, and climate change. You are invited to explore the ideas and history behind the varied and interdisciplinary topics shaping the future. These changes are everywhere, in every field and are often interdisciplinary; and we believe all fields of research have new ideas and interpretations to contribute.

The conference welcomes everyone whether you want to present your ideas or just network with other postgraduate researchers. Exhibiting your research is not limited just to presenting papers (talks); we also welcome poster submissions for those whose ideas are best articulated visually. The best paper and poster will win a prize.
