Abstract

Developing a Personal Research Program

Based on over four decades of academic experience, Professor Michael Harvey shares his insights on how to develop a personal research agenda with the potential for long-run impact. The journey begins by reflecting on the actual goals of academic inquiry alongside an assessment of the contributions we, as researchers, have made to our respective disciplines thus far. His message calls for the cultivation of one’s field of research by advocating the role of curiosity and creativity, arguably found while working at the intersection of disciplines. The presentation speaks to seasoned academics and Research Higher Degree (RHD) students who share an interest in perspectives of the academic research/publishing world. Lunch at the Rooftop Cafe after the workshop. Join our staff, students and alumni attending workshops presented by visiting academics on their area of research expertise.
