Theory Workshops

AARE Theory Workshops aim is to promote critical and engaged dialogue, to test and explore new ideas, theories and approaches, to meet and interact with other researchers who are at different stages of their graduate studies and academic work, to make connections, to encounter intriguing  ‘big ideas’, and to enjoy the challenge of intellectual exchange.

They provide opportunities for novice researchers to be immersed in theory, to consider how theory applies to their research, to learn from expert researchers, and to network with experienced researchers as well as other novice researchers.

The workshops are held in different locations across Australia each year. To see any upcoming workshops


For each workshop there are a number of scholarships available. For more information on these scholarships
