You are warmly invited to participate in the 24th University of Southern Queensland, Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher (PGECR) Group research symposium.

Research paradoxes exist across all disciplines and methodologies. The following examples are not exhaustive, but are provided to provoke presentation ideas: planning vs flexibility; sampling vs generalising, researcher as expert vs novice; comprehensive summary; privilege and social justice; conventions vs pushing boundaries; research as a bittersweet journey; barriers and enablers; eliminating bias. Authors of abstracts are invited to engage with any elements of the theme and sub-themes. The symposium will be followed by dinner and drinks (own cost, venue to be advised)
