Since the early 1990s, the School of English postgraduate community has run a successful programme of staff–postgraduate seminars. The seminars allow postgraduate students and staff members from the School to present their work to their peers in a friendly, collegiate atmosphere. Furthermore, it is an important forum for the school to share its research with visiting scholars, as well as scholars from other disciplines outside the School of English. We also welcome members of the public to attend the seminars.
The seminars for the academic year 2017–18 are under the stewardship of current PhD students Alexander Jones and Julia O'Connell. If you have any enquiries about the seminars, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next Staff Postgraduate Seminar takes place on 20th February at 1pm in the Arts Building Conference Room. Dr. Seán Hewitt will be discussing 'Natural History and the Irish Revival', focusing on works by J.M. Synge, Seamus O'Sullivan and Emily Lawless. Adrian Howlett's talk will be entitled ‘”The Infinite Possibilities Hitherto Unexploited of the Modern Art of Advertisement”: Advertising in Ulysses’.
