CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
The ASMCF North West AGM will be held at 4pm at the University of Liverpool on Wednesday 11 June 2014 (LT4, Rendall Building) .
The AGM will be preceded by a postgraduate workshop, to which all MA and PhD students working on modern and contemporary France and the wider French-speaking world are invited to contribute. The event will provide a constructive forum for discussion of and comment on postgraduate work in progress. There is no specific theme for the workshop, and we invite presentations on history, literary and cultural studies, film and media studies, and the political and social sciences. We are also pleased to accept proposals for presentations with a transnational or comparative dimension, as well as those addressing aspects of the French Empire or France’s relations with the wider world. Students with an interest in modern and contemporary France in History, Politics and other subject areas outside French/studies Modern Languages are also very welcome to submit. The event is aimed in particular at postgraduate students in the North West of England, but is open to all. There will be no change for attendance, but we ask delegates to seek support for travel and other expenses from their own institutions.
Please send proposals for twenty-minute presentations (in English or French) together with a brief CV to Will Amos (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 18 April 2014.
