College of Humanities to hold inaugural Postgraduate Research Student Conference

Bringing together research students from across the College, the inaugural Postgraduate Research Student Conference will be held on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1 May 2012.

The College is preparing for its first ever PGR student conference, which will provide an important opportunity for our research students to share their work and gain experience of presenting in a conference setting. Following an excellent response to the call for papers 48 students have been selected to present their research over two days in six interdisciplinary themes:

  • Defining Frontiers
  • Gender, Sexuality and Inclusivity
  • Identity and Place
  • Narrating Cultures
  • Negotiating Discourse
  • Violence, Bodies and Conflicted Space

Professor Andrew McRae will be opening the conference with keynote paper entitled ‘Permanent Revolution: A View of the Humanities’.

All research students in the College are invited to attend the conference and we very much hope that staff, and particularly supervisors of PGR students who are making presentations, will also come to some of the sessions.

Event Details

The Conference takes place on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1 May 2012. For further details, including the schedule please visit the Conference web page. Registration is now open for current students and staff on the Conference booking page until 26 April 2012. Registration is free for the conference itself and if you plan to attend on either day we would ask you to register so that we can cater for the lunch and refreshment breaks accordingly.


Sponsored by the College of Humanities, the Researcher Development Programme, and INTO.
