This conference is open to all University of Sussex GRC Hums DPhils and attendance is free, courtesy of the University of Sussex Humanities Graduate Centre & the AHRC.

Travel will not be funded as Lewes is very close to the University of Sussex and is serviced by Buses 28 & 29 www.buses.co.uk and Rail www.nationalrail.co.uk

We have now notified the people who will be presenting and we are working on organising the Panels. We have provisionally placed papers in Panels, but these have not as yet been finalised. Soon, we will send out the Registration form (also here), both for delegates and attendees. So watch this space.

The deadline for the papers was on Friday. The organising team of the conference was busy with reading the abstracts during the last few days. We received a large number of submissions and so we had to carefully put them through a selection process. Those who have submitted an abstract for consideration will soon hear from us.


UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX
HUMANITIES GRADUATE CENTRE
ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2009
 
“Transitions: An Interdisciplinary Conference”
Pelham House, Lewes, 11 June 2009
 
The School of Humanities Graduate Centre at the University of Sussex is hosting the last
one-day annual postgraduate Conference on 11 June 2009. 
 
This interdisciplinary conference is organized by postgraduate students 
and aims to bring together researchers/students/recently graduated from 
widely divergent fields to share perspectives of their work. In 
addition to providing an opportunity to receive feedback on works-in-
progress, this conference aims at enriching the way we think and speak 
about research today. It will enable participants to investigate, 
evaluate and connect with current trends and new developments in 
scholarship and research.
 
The conference will feature panel presentations (of approx. 20 min. in 
length) with three speakers on each panel and time for discussion at 
the end of each session.
 
Sessions will be built around themes, with presentations grouped as far 
as possible in ways that bring together a variety of historical and 
generic areas of study. The following list of themes and topics is 
indicative only.
 
Papers might consider (but are not limited to) the following themes and 
issues: 
 
• Gender and Sexuality
• Narrative
• Space, Place and Location 
• Intertextuality 
• Religion 
• Interpretation and Critique 
• Media, Film and fusion 
• Performance and the Body 
• Language, meaning and discourse 
• Representations of Culture 
• Political Theory 
Submissions are strongly encouraged from individuals and groups working 
in all fields in the School of Humanities:
• American Studies
• Art History 
• English 
• Drama 
• History 
• Sussex Language Institute 
• Linguistics and English Language 
• Media and Film Studies 
• Music 
• Philosophy
 
We particularly welcome proposals from early career’s researchers.
 
Please send your proposal (300 words) for a 20 minute presentation and 
a biography (including name, degree, year and research interests). 
Abstracts must be received by 01 May 2009 to be considered.
