March Graduate Research Symposium: Call for papers
Date: Monday 16 March 2015 Time: 1.30pm to 5.00pm Venue: 101, 30 Russell Square
Deadline for paper proposals: by Monday 2 March
The next Graduate Research Symposium (previously known as Graduate Research Day) for students in Birkbeck’s Department of History, Classics and Archaeology has been scheduled for Monday 16 March. Graduate students are invited to present their work in progress (this might be a chapter from your thesis, or a presentation for a conference), and all are welcome to attend and discover more about the research being produced in the department.
The time allotted to presenters will be approximately 20 minutes, followed by 10-15 minutes for questions and discussion at the end of each session of 2-3 papers. Proposals for panels are also encouraged. PowerPoint facilities will be available for use if needed and tea, coffee and snacks will be provided.
Students have found these events a helpful and encouraging environment in which to present, and presentations at this event count towards upgrade requirements. The day represents an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience delivering a paper and receive feedback on work in a relaxed and supportive setting.
For students who are not presenting the day is informative and useful in developing your own ideas and approaches for future presentations, so hopefully many of you will be attending.
Interested in presenting a paper? Send your name, paper title, thesis topic, supervisor’s name and 250-300 word abstract to Simon Jarrett firstname.lastname@example.org and Danae Karydaki email@example.com by Monday 2 March 2015.
