Postgraduate Forum


Researching Objects-Images-Emotions (ROIE)

ROIE is an interdisciplinary postgraduate forum established by CIM in cooperation with the Cultural Dynamics and Emotions Network (CDEN). It is based at the School of History and Anthropology at Queen's University, Belfast.

It is an exploratory and experimental forum that seeks to stimulate creative thinking and aims to:

  • provide a platform for discussion about the social lives of objects and images and the emotional dimensions of cultural production
  • enable research students whose work is partly focused on objects, images and/or emotional processes to present and develop their ongoing research
  • make connections with postgraduate students connected to other HERA-funded projects
  • organise a postgraduate conference which will bring together students working on the themes outlined above.
