The main aim of the symposium is to offer young researchers an opportunity to share ideas, make new contacts and develop professionally. Students present papers and run workshops on a variety of topics connected to British and American studies, including linguistics, literature, media studies, gender studies, teaching, creative writing, and many others. The department also publishes a selection of the papers presented at the symposium in the Journal of Student Research in Languages and Literatures (JSRLL).

We aim to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, so we encourage presenters to make their speeches as lively and interactive as possible, and participants to ask questions.

Proposals for 20-minute presentations should be submitted by 31 January 2021 by submitting a 150-word abstract here. Submissions should include the presenter(s)’s name, affiliation, the presentation title, and professional contact information for the presenter(s).

The event is open to undergraduate and M.A. students.

January 31, 2021
