Please note time and place

“What are the PhD Students Working On?”: A comprehensive survey of PhD dissertations in progress. Deadline January 19. First joint higher seminar for PhD students specializing in literature or rhetoric in the Department of Literature and the Faculty of Languages

Chair: Torsten Pettersson and Julie Hansen, Director of the LiLae network at the Faculty of Languages, Uppsala University


Presentation
This is intended as a comprehensive survey of PhD dissertations in progress at Uppsala University in the fields of literature and rhetoric. We hope that all PhD students specializing in these fields will be able to join us to be informed and inspired by the work of their colleagues in the different departments. We will also plan future cooperation, such as a symposium for PhD students in the autumn of 2017.

At the seminar the PhD students will give a very brief oral presentation of their work followed by a general discussion. A list of all reported work in progress will also be distributed. Even if you are unable to participate in person on January 31, please make sure that your work is taken into account by sending a title and short abstract (100–250 words) of your PhD project to Julie Hansen and Torsten Pettersson by Thursday, January 19.
