10th Annual Postgraduate Conference
MYTH VS. REALITY
“Behind every myth lies a truth; beyond every legend is reality, as radiant (sometimes as chilling) as the story itself.” - Phyllis McGinley
As researchers, we are told to seek the truth – the reality – of our topics of enquiry. We have to contend with
the stories that are told and which form the myths around what we think we know, aiming to remove old
certainties in favour of the reality. This desire for knowledge often drives the study of the Humanities, and
is also a fruitful topic for enquiry in itself: Where do myths come from? How are they formed? What
purpose do they serve? Why are they believed? How do we move beyond myth to reality? What
distinguishes myth from reality?
This day long interdisciplinary conference aims to bring together research from across the disciplines of Humanities: Archaeology, English, Film, History, Modern Languages, Music, and Philosophy.
Schedule of the Day: A full programme will be released as soon as possible. Lunch will be provided.
