Our colleagues (and fellow C19 Group Members) at Bishop Grosseteste University have put together an excellent programme for their School of Humanities Seminar Series. Information about this series can be found below:

‘BGU School of Humanities is pleased to launch its first multidisciplinary research seminar series. Each seminar provides a relaxed forum in which BGU academics, academics from other universities, undergraduates, postgraduates, and the public connect and converse in an informal intellectual research environment. All seminars take place on a Wednesday, except our third seminar in November (26 Nov.), at 1:00pm, except for the first one in the series, which starts at 14:00.

Seminars last for one hour, including a 30-40 minutes presentation about a current piece of research, followed by a 20-30 minutes discussion. You are welcome and light refreshments are offered. For further information, please contact the convenors Dr Claudia Capancioni claudia.capancioni@bishopg.ac.uk [01522 583740] and/or Dr Claire Hubbard-Hall claire.hubbard-hall@bishopg.ac.uk [01522 583736].

This new series starts on Wednesday 7 October 2015 at 14:00,  with Dr Amber Pouliot (Teaching Fellow in British Studies, University of Evansville at Harlaxton College UK), who is the first guest for English. Dr Pouliot taught English at BGU last year. Her paper is entitled, ‘Guidebooks, Ghostliness, and the Brontës: Charting the Path from the ‘Silent Country’ to the Séance.This seminar will be held in Hardy Seminar Three (Hardy Building).’
