2016 Sylvia Naish Research Student Lecture – Call for Submissions!

To all PG members!

The following call for submissions from the IMLR is a brilliant opportunity for you to showcase your doctoral work. We were extremely pleased to receive so many fantastic and thought provoking contributions to our annual WiGS conference in Durham earlier this month, and we feel that everyone who spoke at the conference, or who put in a proposal for the essay prize would stand a chance of being selected for this.

Do consider submitting a proposal and bear in mind that the deadline is:  4 January 2016.

“The Sylvia Naish Lectures were launched in memory of Sylvia Naish, an accomplished linguist, translator, Friend of Germanic Studies, and benefactor of the former Institute of Germanic Studies.

Each year, research students registered for higher degrees in the field of Germanic studies at Universities in the United Kingdom are invited to submit proposals for the next lecture. The event forms part of the Institute’s programme of activities, which are open to the public. The theme of the lecture should be related to the student’s topic of research; the lecture itself should appeal to an audience of non-specialists and aim to convey both the excitement and the importance of the research topic. The winning entry carries a prize of £100, plus modest travel and/or accommodation expenses as appropriate, which are covered by the Sylvia Naish Bequest. The lecture is published in abridged form in the next issue of the Newsletter, the annual magazine of the Friends of Germanic Studies.”

The 2016 Sylvia Naish Lecture will be held on Thursday, 7 April 2016.

Submissions are now invited for the 2016 Sylvia Naish Lecture. Abstracts and 1pp-curriculum vitae should be sent to reach Dr Godela Weiss-Sussex by close of business on Monday, 4 January 2016.
