The AHSS Poster Online Exhibition is now live. You can view the page at the following Facebook link: 

There are a range of topics covered in the posters with postgraduate researchers from every School and Department within AHSS.  All the posters are numbered. If you click on the posters, it will open individually and each entry has the name of the student, a short bio and an abstract.  It also includes a separate link to enlarge the poster.  You can leave comments, ask questions on the day and the students will be able to interact with you.  It would be great for AHSS Postgraduate Researchers within UL, Mary Immaculate College and Limerick Institute of Technology to get feedback and support from other postgraduate researchers on their research.
