Stuart Smedley and Karen Jeffrey made video presentations to a conference hosted by the Political Studies Association’s Early Careers Network, which took place between 13-24 July.

The conference, #BecauseTheInternet, saw more than 90 presentations made, with almost 250 people attending the virtual event.

Stuart’s presentation was entitled British public opinion and attitudes towards developments in European integration: A historical analysis, with Karen’s presentation titled Automation and the Future of Work: How rhetoric shapes the response in policy preferences.

The conference used the ‘content delivery’ approach and the format worked on the basis that each presenter submitted a 15-minute video presentation, which anyone taking part in the conference could then comment on.
