Description

The Centre for the History of the Gothic is pleased to announce our next event: a Gothic Training Retreat – an event to answer all those questions about PhD study and academia you never wanted to ask!

Held over three days at the University of Sheffield, this event will offer an opportunity for academic and professional development, as well as networking for Undergraduate and Masters students hoping to pursue a PhD, current PhD students, and Early Career Researchers of all disciplines who work within Gothic studies. With the Gothic Training Retreat, we hope to continue to bring researchers together in friendly and productive environment.

We will be welcoming three guest speakers, each focusing on a different aspect of Gothic study and research:

22nd March: Deborah Russell (University of York) on 18th Century Gothic

23rd March: Sue Chaplin (Leeds Becket University) on 19th Century Gothic

24th March: Maisha Wester (Visiting Fulbright Scholar at University of Sheffield) on 20th & 21st Century Gothic

Each morning will consist of a talk from one of our guest speakers, followed by a workshop and discussion. The afternoons will feature sessions from academics, specialists and PhD students on a variety of topics from how to write conference abstracts and how to build a social media presence to launching projects and getting published.

The event is free to attend and open to all disciplines: we encourage attendees to stay for the all three days to get the full experience, but single day attendance is available.

A full schedule will be available in the New Year. For more information in the meantime, please contact l.nixon@sheffield.ac.uk or find us on Twitter @SheffieldGothic.
