The Humanities Postgraduate Research Conference at the University of Exeter offers a unique opportunity to bring students across the College's disciplines into discussions about their research. Organised by students for students, this two-day event offers a platform for the University of Exeter postgraduates to present current work in an academically diverse and rigorous environment.
Our participants will present on a variety of topics that will address the theme of memory as this year's conference will be centred on the theme of 'Reimagining the past, inventing the future'. The panel topics will include:
Day 1 (April. 1)
The impact of an author’s experience on their literature
Silent and Unconsenting Bodies
Women in a man’s world
Translations for new audiences
Science, Technology and the Natural World
New Approaches to Queerness
Day 2 (April. 2)

Rewriting and Reconstructing Memory
Artistic depictions of resistance
Reinterpretation of religious sources
Workshops will also be held every morning, as well as a keynote speaker at the end of day 1, and a roundtable discussion at the end of day 2. Details of the timetable can be viewed on our website. https://exeterpgrconf.wordpress.com
Snacks, coffee and lunch will be provided on both days. A conference dinner will also be held on the first evening at Reed Hall. Early bird price will be £10 for the first 50 people, and after that it will cost £20. Registration will be open until 8th March, but do book early to get the reduced price.
