Past participant testimonial

‘Presenting my article draft at the HOTCUS work-in-progress session was a fantastic experience. It provided me with a forum to test the clarity and validity of my research, serving as a quasi-peer review process. The attendees were able to provide me with intricate and detailed feedback on my writing, argument, and source base in ways that would be difficult to replicate in formal conference paper presentations.’ Dr Alex Bryne (University of Nottingham)
