Queen Mary English Department Postgraduate Research Seminar – organised by LAHP PhD student Ruth Hobley

The Queen Mary English Department Postgraduate Research Seminar is a fortnightly research seminar that takes place every other Thursday during the first and second semesters of the academic year. Seminars are led by speakers from a number of academic institutions, who come to discuss their current research-in-progress with the staff and postgraduate students in the English Department. The papers are followed by a question and answer session (and refreshments when not hosted virtually!).

The next event is scheduled for Thursday 29th October at 5pm, when Dr Jason Allen-Paisant from the University of Leeds will be giving a paper entitled ‘Blackness and Landscape: A Long Historical View’. You can find details of our full programme and how to book on our website: queenmaryenglish.wordpress.com, and on Twitter @QMEnglishPGRS. This Autumn semester, all our seminars will be hosted on Zoom, usually at 5pm (GMT), though please check individual event pages for details. Seminars are free to attend, but booking is essential.

All are welcome. This is a seminar organised by current PhD students at Queen Mary, but it is open to anyone who is interested in English and literary studies. The organisers are particularly keen to reach out to Master’s students and to those from other universities and institutions.
