SEING III 2021

SEING III: Building Bridges and Filling Gaps in English Studies Research

This online seminar is intended for doctoral students in English studies who wish to present their current research. During these unprecedented times, in which we need to be more connected than ever, this seminar is conceived as an opportunity for young researchers to share and compare their initiatives and their experiences as PhD students with other colleagues.

As previous editions corroborate, this event allows students to get in contact with peers who share similar concerns and face similar challenges throughout their research years. During this seminar, PhD students will be accompanied by early-career researchers and post-graduates, who will share their skills, hopes, and fears, as well as senior lecturers and experts in English Studies research.
