CfP: BAAS Seminar Series: PGR Work in Progress Session, Winter 2020 (Online)

September 21, 2020

After a very successful pilot during the summer months, the organisers decided to continue BAAS PGR Work in Progress Session for the winter term. The sessions will run on the second Friday of each month during October-December between 15:00-17:00. (9th of October, 13th of November, and the 11th of December)


The organisers invite postgraduate students to present a work in progress on any topic and period related to the Americas – music, visual culture, art, literature, history, politics etc. Postgraduates are encouraged to circulate any piece of writing they see fit – it can be a dissertation chapter, book review or an essay in preparation for a peer review submission. Each session will consist of three presenters and five readers to provide in-depth feedback in a collegial and supportive atmosphere. Upon submission, the organisers will try as much as possible to curate the sessions based on some common ground – themes, period or genre to maximize the chance of having a fruitful experience to all presenters. Each presenter gets to have a 40 minutes discussion on their work. If you are interested to participate as presenters fill in this form and if you are interested to participate as readers please fill in this form by Monday the 21st of September.


If you have any questions don’t hesitate to write to BAAS PG rep – Ellie Armon Azoulay e.armon@kent.ac.uk
