With the new term approaching, we are glad to invite you to join the 2019-2020 Graduate Forum hosted by the Institute of Modern Languages Research, at Senate House, London. The Forum is a friendly and informal space for postgraduates to present their research. It is a great way to meet other students, share your ideas and work-in-progress and get constructive feedback from peers across languages and institutions. Whether you are drafting a chapter or preparing a conference paper, you will find it a really helpful space to develop your work.
Speakers can be from any subject related to the study of modern languages and cultures. Graduate students from departments other than Modern Languages (e.g. English, Anthropology, History, Drama, History of Art, Film and Media, etc.) and students working on comparative projects, are also welcome to join the group to develop interdisciplinary links.
There will be two 15-20 minute presentations per session, followed by a Q&A with free wine and nibbles. After the reception, we will continue the conversation at a local pub.
Please include a working title/brief outline of the subject of your presentation, as well as an institutional affiliation and a short bio. Please also state whether any dates are preferable (we will try to be accommodating but cannot guarantee first choice for everyone).
