This talk addresses how postgraduate students and early career researchers can navigate the daunting world of impact and engagement – whether with the media, policy makers, practitioners, or beyond – as a way of paving the road for life, and a career, after the thesis.
In collaboration with the Linguistics & English Language Department in general, FORGE is delighted to announce our very first talk of the year by our upcoming internal speakers: William Dance and Claire Hardaker (LAEL). Details of the talk are below:
Engagement and impact in media and policy: life above and beyond the thesis
Undertaking a thesis is, for many people, one of the greatest challenges of their lives, but there can be a tendency to focus simply on getting to, and passing the viva, and then life after that moment can come as an entirely unplanned surprise. In this talk, Claire briefly discusses how, in her role as a supervisor, she guides her students through the maze of impact and engagement – whether with the media, policy makers, practitioners, or beyond – as a way of paving the road for life, and a career, after the thesis. William then gives concrete examples of how his path through engagement and impact is currently playing out for him day to day as a PhD student, including reflections on creating and building his public profile, undertaking a Cabinet Office internship, working with journalists both behind the scenes and in front, and more besides.
Whilst this talk will mainly be about engagement during PhD studies, it may also be useful to MA students and ECRs.
The talk will be approximately 30-40 minutes in total, with around 10-20 minutes at the end for Q&A.

I primarily research aggression, deception, and manipulation in computer-mediated communication (CMC), including phenomena such as flaming, trolling, cyberbullying, and online grooming. I tend to take a forensic linguistic approach, based on a corpus linguistic methodology, but due to the multidisciplinary nature of my research, I also inevitably branch out into areas such as psychology, law, and computer science.
My primary research interest is using corpus linguistic approaches to investigate deception and manipulation in online spaces. Situating myself within forensic linguistics, my research focuses on how people manipulate others linguistically and also how, on the internet, ideas spread from their inception until they cease to exist. My PhD thesis, 'The Dissemination of Fake News on Social Media', uses corpus approaches to study the replication and reception of online disinformation (fake news) on
