CCRI announce 2017/18 Postgraduate Winter School

We are pleased to announce that the CCRI 2017/18 Postgraduate Winter School will take place on the 10th – 11th January, 2018, in Cheltenham.

The CCRI Winter School has a strong tradition of creating a supportive and developmental meeting for all postgraduate students, both internal and external, who are studying aspects of rural issues. As well as an opportunity to present a paper outlining progress on an element, or the totality of, a research project there will also be:

Skills-focused sessions and presentations
A three-minute thesis competition
Input from the CCRI staff
A panel debate on new directions for ‘rural’ studies.

With a backdrop of rapid technological evolution and social transformations in rural areas, as well as policy uncertainties and environmental transitions, this constellation of change is altering many facets of the rural. The winter school is a chance to engage with new and established scholars about these changes and benefit from the expertise of CCRI’s most recent research.

The number of places at this popular event is limited; we would encourage any students interested to register their participation in this school quickly.

For more information or reserve a place, please contact Matt Reed ( The CCRI hosts and sponsors this event, but participants will need to provide their own transport and accommodation.
