Call For Papers: The SOTA annual postgraduate conference 2013

On the 19 – 20 September 2013, the University of Northampton School of the Arts will be holding its annual postgraduate conference.  All students registered for PhDs at the School of the Arts are expected to submit twenty minute papers on their research areas, while Masters and MPhil students are strongly encouraged to do so.

This year we would like to build the conference around the clusters which structure research in the School of the Arts:

  1. Cult Narratives
  2. Postcolonialism, Visual Culture and Narrative
  3. Gender, Modernism, Postmodernism
  4. Trauma, Narrative and Performance
  5. Psyche and the Arts
  6. The Design Research Group
  7. Professional Actor Training

Please submit your abstracts and biographies to Larissa Allwork ( by 5 July 2013 and comment on which cluster best suits your proposed paper.  If your paper does not fit a cluster, please feel free to still submit an abstract as we would like as many School of the Arts postgraduate researchers to be represented as possible.

Also, please state from the outset if you have any special requirements in relation to performance spaces or technological equipment.  Finally, if it is not possible for you to submit a paper, please let us know in advance.
