Staff-Postgraduate Seminars

The Staff-Postgraduate Seminar Series has been integral to the School of English research community since the 1990s. The aim of the seminar series is to provide a relaxed and convivial atmosphere for staff and students to present their research to their peers. The series also welcomes distinguished guest lecturers from the academic community outside Trinity College to present on their work.

It is a fantastic opportunity to share ideas and engage with the diverse research taking place within the School. The series is a bi-weekly meeting of postgraduates and staff. Students and early career researchers may present 20 minute papers on any aspect of their research, while staff members and guest speakers are invited to contribute 40 minute papers.

The series conveners for the academic year 2021-22 are current PhD students Orla Donnelly, Eric Swartz, and Claire Poynton-Smith.
For any enquiries regarding the series please contact

The seminars will take place every other Tuesday at 4 pm on Zoom for Michaelmas Term.

The final speaker this term is UCD's Professor Nicholas Daly who will be speaking on the suitably festive topic of 'Christmas in Ruritania: Hallmark Holiday Movies and the Long Afterlife of a Victorian Fantasy'. More information on and the link for registration can be found here:
