What's happening in the Hive?

Review: Sussex Research Hive Seminar Series 2015

The Sussex Research Hive Seminar Series brings together the Sussex community to discuss current issues in research. The popular series, now in its sixth year, ran from January to March. Speakers addressed a range of issues, including; copyright and the preservation of research outputs in the digital age, as well as new approaches in collaborative working practice in the humanities, and the future of Open Access.

These lunchtime events, funded by SAGE, were hosted by the Library and open to everyone engaged in, or supporting, the research process at Sussex. If you were unable to attend any of the sessions, the slides and recordings have been made available where possible. 

The Sussex Research Seminar series will return in 2016. If there are particular subjects that you would like to see covered please send your suggestions to:


Shut up & write! Sussex Research Hive FlyerShut Up and Write! (Wednesday 13th May 14:00 - 16:00 - The Meeting House)

Come along to the Research Hive's March Shut up and Write session and get some words down on the page. Bring laptops, pen and paper and the desire to up your word count!

The idea of the session is to remove any distractions or means of procrastinating and to benefit from collective silence and focus. After a brief chat and cup of coffee everyone will zip it, sit down and focus on their writing!

The event takes place on the 13th of every month, and is run by one of the Hive scholars. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided. All researchers are very welcome.
