Subject: Postgraduate Conference in the Arts: Call for Papers
I am contacting you with regards to the Postgraduate Conference in the
School of Arts that we are hosting on January the 27th, 2007 at the
University of Roehampton, London.
The conference will focus on interdisciplinary research within the arts and
humanities which includes music, anthropology, social studies and media
It will be a conference organised by postgraduates at Roehampton and for
other postgraduates to attend or present. As this is officially billed as a
'training event' we are giving priority to those studying at Roehampton when
it comes to presenting papers. However, we welcome submissions from other
university students elsewhere as we are aiming to make this one-day event as
national or even international as possible.
Please find attached the Call for Papers for this event.
We look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
