All NWSSDTP-funded students are expected to be involved in one of the four Methods North West Methods Exchange (‘MethodsX’) themes:
- Archives, Collections and Documents of Life
- New Forms of Data/Digital Methods
- Quantitative Methods
Students can select the most appropriate stream for them. Involvement in the themes consists of attendance at three events a year – two theme meetings and one conference, which brings together everyone involved in all four themes.
