Kate Mattocks at Political Studies Association conference in Brighton
Earlier this week PhD researcher Kate Mattocks presented two papers at the 66th annual Political Studies Association conference in Brighton. The first paper was based on her PhD findings and talked about the outcomes of EU cultural policy coordination. The second paper emerged from her work with the PSA’s Equality and Diversity working group and discussed challenges faced by three minority groups within the discipline – women, BMEs, and disabled persons – when completing a PhD in politics.
In her capacity as communications officer of the PSA’s postgraduate network, Kate was also involved in organising the postgraduate panels at the conference as well as co-hosting the postgraduate reception, which this year featured a talk by City’s Professor Richard Murphy on ‘the joys of tax’.
