CLAMS Postgraduate Forum
The CLAMS Postgrad Forum (formerly Medieval Reading Group) is open to all students of medieval history, literature, and culture at King's and further afield. We meet fortnightly to discuss works in progress, practice conference papers, and test out thesis ideas. We will also share news of conference calls for papers, external seminars, and other medieval postgrad opportunities. Doing an MA or PhD can sometimes be a little isolating, so we hope the forum will be a great chance to get out of the library.
We would especially welcome MA students to propose ideas for sessions. You may want to practice a paper for a conference, or present initial dissertation ideas, using the group as a 'sounding board' to pose questions and develop your thinking. Two to three MA students may present during the same session.
If you would like to present at the PGF this term, please do email the organisers Matt Lampitt email@example.com and Fran Allfrey firstname.lastname@example.org.
All MA and PhD students from King's and beyond are welcome to the CLAMS postgraduate forums which take place on Thursdays, 18.30-20.00, room K1.26.
