DRAFT / ASFS Works-in-Progress Symposium for Research Students in French and Francophone Studies
DRAFT and the Australian Society for French Studies (ASFS) invite proposals from research students for a works-in-progress symposium to be held online Friday 28th July, 2023. The event is designed to offer a supportive space for research students, working on a topic related to French and Francophone Studies, to share their current work with their peers as well as other scholars whose current research activities relate to the presentations.
Who: The event is open to students enrolled in a research degree (Honours, MPhil, PhD, or equivalent), in Australia, New Zealand or abroad. Students can be enrolled in French Studies, French and Francophone Studies, or in a different discipline but working on topics related to the field.
What: The event will host online works-in-progress presentations, in French or English, in two different formats:
- 10-minute presentation + 5 minutes of discussion/questions
- this option is designed for projects that are still in the early stages of development.
- all proposals from eligible students will be accepted.
- proposals should include a 100-word summary of the presentation.
- 20-minute presentation + 10 minutes of discussion/questions
- this option is better suited to a more developed project.
