First LSE PhD poster exhibition a success

PhD Poster ExhibitionThe first LSE PhD Poster Exhibition was held at LSE on Wednesday 26 May with seven students being awarded prizes for their posters, including Vlad Glaveanu, Department of Social Psychology, who won the Barclays Grand Poster Prize for his poster, Creativity and Cultural Context (pictured).


Entitled Relating Research to Reality, the exhibition featured a keynote panel discussion on Making Research Relevant, chaired by Bob Ward, policy and communications director of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, before the poster walk through. 

Prizes were awarded by the pro-directors for the top six posters (from 58 submissions) with an additional prize for the most popular poster on the day. Over 200 people attended the event and the winning posters are now on display in the escape area of the Library . 

Professor Danny Quah, professor of economics and co-director of Global Governance, said: 'This exhibition is a wonderful idea: It leverages all the best that LSE has to offer, breaks down silos of social science research, and challenges every one to the hard task of communicating to audiences not already convinced of just one way of thinking. Well done to the organizers on the initial concept, and all good wishes for the ongoing endeavour.'
