UCL English Graduate Conference: Transformations – Call for Papers

Over the past century the study of English literature has undergone vast transformations, prompting academics and writers to re-evaluate the concept of the ‘canon’, examine practices of reading, and consider the cultural impact of texts and criticism.

This year’s UCL English Department graduate conference seeks to explore the nature of transformation and the many possible meanings this can hold for the wide diaspora of text production and consumption.

All PGR students are invited to submit papers for consideration. Please submit abstracts (max. 250 words) for 15 minute papers to transformations.ucl@gmail.com by 1st April. For more information, visit http://ucl-transformations.tk/.

Grantfinder4Education launch

The University has used GRANTfinder for many years to search for Project Funding and Policy News but things are changing.  A brand new and improved interface makes it so much easier to use and a new Research module has been added so now you can use GRANTfinder4Education to search for all funding, whatever your project  or research idea.

As a result your existing login with GRANTfinder, along with any logins for Research Professional will no longer work.  To find out how the new system works, to sign up for a new login and to get a feel for how to get the best results, come along to the launch of GRANTfinder4Education – details below.  Places are strictly limited: To book please email the Research and Strategic Bidding Office: rsb@northampton.ac.uk.

Launch of GRANTfinder4Education incorporating Researchconnect
Wednesday 11 December 2013 with lunch: 11.45-2.00pm

‘Hunting down permissions’: fair use, copyright and academic publishing

I was particularly intrigued by the Slate article Executors or Executioners? by Joseph Thomas, the frustrated would-be author of a Shel Siverstein biography, not only because Silverstein is currently among my daughter’s favourite authors but also for the discussion of the chilling effect that ‘playing it safe’ with copyright can have on fair use and scholarly publishing.
