Call for Papers – New Perspectives: Postgraduate Symposium for the Humanities

The New Perspectives: Postgraduate Symposium for the Humanities (NPPSH) at Maynooth University is actively seeking abstract submissions for short (10 min) papers, long (20 min) papers, and posters highlighting research in the humanities.

This brand new annual symposium will be taking place on 13th and 14th October 2016 in Maynooth, and will be hosted by An Foras Feasa. It is organised and run by postgraduate students to highlight new postgraduate research taking place in the Humanities, and the event will coincide with the annual Dean’s lecture.

The themes of the first symposium will consider collaboration across disciplines in the Humanities, bringing focus to under-represented voices and areas of research, and the role of Humanities research both in how we educate others, and in how we interact with the world outside academia. What are we doing with our research, and how can we use it to make a difference to the wider society? These are just some of the themes that are relevant to this conference, but we will welcome all submissions from Humanities postgraduates.

Taught Masters, Research Masters, and PhD students are encouraged to submit. The papers will be subsequently published as part of conference proceedings.

Submission Deadline: 30 May 2016, 5 PM

We ask that you help spread the word by sharing this email with postgraduate students in your departments and across Ireland.
