World Class Day 2021

 A platform to virtually facilitate research presentations by students in and around themes connected to Humanities and Social Sciences.

 On 28-29 May 2021, World Class Day will celebrate students’ research internationally. By live video link, students will present snapshots of projects they have undertaken as part of their regular studies. Within five minutes, they will provide a focus and motivation for their research, identify a key finding, and anticipate next steps. World Class Day has been an experiment; its organizers are seeking to give international exposure to — and engagement with — an exciting diversity of perspectives, approaches, and discoveries.
