We are fast-approaching the end of the Michaelmas term, and with that the conclusion of the first set of the School of English Staff-Postgraduate Seminar Series in the 2015-16 academic calendar. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every speaker so far for truly outstanding papers. We extend our gratitude also to you all for attending each week and contributing to the lively discussions.
Today, we are delighted to open the call for papers for next term. This term has demonstrated the highly original, interdisciplinary and rigorous research being carried out in TCD’s School of English, the university’s wider research community, and on an international level. We have really taken a lot from the fruitful interaction between students and staff from across a number of disciplines this term, and we are excited about further advancing this engagement next term. It has been fantastic to see many new faces as well as those who continue to support the series.
Papers are encouraged from current postgraduate students in the School as well as staff members. If you are interested in presenting a paper in the coming academic year, please send a title and an abstract of up to 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 December 2015. The seminars usually take place on Tuesdays in the Trinity Long Room Hub Neill Lecture Theatre at 17:00.
You can find more information on our Facebook page or on Twitter: @TCDSeminars15.
We look forward to hearing from you and continuing the seminar series after the Christmas break.
P.S We’re excited about next Tuesday’s papers and we look forward to seeing you all there! PhD student Will Brady will present on Clue-Puzzle Crime Fiction and World War II and postdoctoral researcher Dr Ailise Bulfin will speak about The Fiction of the Gothic Indies. Until then!
Gavin, Nora, and Kate.
