Who are we?
The English Graduate Society was established to create a sense of community among postgraduates in the School of English, Drama and Film. The Society’s overall aim is to help foster a support network among the 160 or so registered School graduates.
What do we do?
The English Graduate Society organises seminars, MA and PhD info events, and welcome events for new postgraduate students. This year the society will be organising a Postgraduate Symposium due to take place before the March break in 2013. Postgraduate students at all levels, both MA and PhD are encouraged to present either 25 or 45 minute talks.
Speakers from the symposium, and postgraduates who wish to publish book reviews or conference proceedings will be invited to publish in the Society’s journal Emerging Perspectives.
Annually the society also organises a literary pub crawl, and a PhD information session for MA students.
How do I get involved?
Attend the first seminar on Wednesday the 3rd of October in J208 at 4pm, with a welcome event taking place afterwards at 5.30pm in the Common Room, 1st Floor, Block A, Newman Building.
