Hello to all EAC postgraduates, new and returning.
This is a note to tell you that the department’s Research Seminar will begin again this Wednesday 26th September. It begins at 5pm, and will be held in Samuel Alexander A113.
The purpose of the seminar is to give academic staff from within the department and from elsewhere to present new research among colleagues: to showcase work and crash test ideas. All postgraduate students, MA and PhD, are warmly invited. It’s generally a social occasion as well as an important part of the department’s research; we take the speaker for drinks as a thank you, and encourage people to come and meet and chat.
This week: Howard Booth (Manchester), ‘John Addington Symonds, Venice and the gaze’ | Samuel Alexander A113 | 5pm
'Exploring John Addington Symonds (1840-1893) – the cultural critic, poet and early writer on homosexuality - as a transitional figure between late Victorian writing and the Modern, this paper focuses on Symonds’s response to Venice. (HB will discuss a number of poems and images – in short, you don’t have to have read any Symonds!)'
Look forward to seeing you there!
