    About this event

    The College of Social Sciences and Law is delighted to announce its annual Summer School for graduate research students and postdoctoral researchers which runs from Wednesday 18 May to Thursday 19 May, 2022. The Summer School will take place in person and offer master classes, transferable skills sessions and research panels over the course of two days. This event brings together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and academic staff from a wide range of disciplines and showcases research activities throughout our College. Our goal is to encourage a sharing of ideas and interests across disciplines, and to enhance skills and emphasise supports in a friendly and relaxed environment. Those that attend all sessions on 18th and 19th will receive a CoSSL Summer School Certificate of Completion.

    The College will also host a one-day an online NVivo training session on Tuesday 17 May, from 9am to 4pm, which is open to research students, postdoctoral researchers and academic staff. Tickets for this workshop are available here. This is an online session only.

    13.50 - 15.00: Workshop: Introduction to LateX - Marion Bartl and Giulia Osti (School of Information & Communication Studies)

    The aim of this workshop is to make the LateX (/ˈlɑːtɛx/ LAH-tekh or /ˈleɪtɛx/) typesetting system accessible to a non-technical audience. LateX has many advantages over traditional word processing softwares like Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, or Google Docs. These include easy handling of complex documents, separation of content and its presentation, free availability, and many more. However, because LateX uses a kind of markup language that can look like computer code to the untrained eye, researchers from the social sciences are often reluctant to make the first step. The workshop offers its participants to take this first step together. We will be giving a broad overview of document templates, basic formatting, elements like images and tables, cross-referencing, and citation. We will also introduce the Overleaf Editor, a web-based LateX editor that enables effortless collaboration and integration of common citation managers. Participants must bring their laptops and should create an online Overleaf account in advance.
