Is the prospect of delivering your next paper or dissertation, sending shivers down your spine? Would you rather go over Niagara Falls in a barrel than speak to a room full of people? Just why do we get so anxious about public speaking? How can some people do it so easily?
PhD researchers will present their work alongside the keynote presenters to consider: strands of re-enactment as a research method; the subjectivity of the researcher/artist/archive; and what it means to work in the context of historical research.
The primary aim of the event is to inspire and help shape current and future written work through an extended workshop and foster an exchange of thoughts and a collaborative reading and writing through registers creative and critical.
