Poster Presentations (Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences)

Tue 16 Jun 2020


Poster presentations are a well-established format for presenting research findings within STEM subjects. The past few years has witnessed a growth in poster presentations across a number of AHSS conferences. Given the infancy of this phenomena, it stands that a number of researchers within AHSS remain unsure on the question of content design and delivery.

During the session, therefore, we will explore what makes a successful poster presentation in AHSS and examine how key components of a poster can be designed to make the poster more effective to your target audience.

This is a beginner’s course covering the basics of poster presentations.

Target audience

PhD Students in Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences
Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available here.


If you have a specific poster that you are currently working on (e.g. for a forthcoming conference), then you can use the session to gain feedback on it. If you have already presented a poster, we encourage you to bring a copy to the session for the purposes of discussion and reflection.
