Addendum Introduction

The Latest Learning Colloquy was a one-day training conference open to all postgraduate students in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC). It was the culmination of the “Getting Over the Fear” project, which aimed to demystify the conference process, and to offer Masters and PhD students in LLC a chance to present their research in a friendly and supportive environment. The Latest Learning Colloquy was open to all postgraduate students working within the diverse research fields of LLC, including European Languages and Cultures, English Literature, Film Studies and Theatre Studies, Asian Studies, Celtic and Scottish Studies, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, Translation Studies, Comparative Literature, and Creative Writing.

As the Colloquy was designed to reflect “what’s new in LLC,” the event was made as welcoming and unintimidating as possible. Many of those who took part were Masters students or first year PhD students giving their first ever papers.

The two papers included in this Addendum both began life as papers at the Latest Learning Colloquy. ‘The Shakespeare death tercentenary celebrations in England and Scotland: how British was Shakespeare in 1916?’ and ‘Exploring the Enlightenment from Intellectual History and Critical Theory: a case study of hybrid methodologies’ are representative of the fantastic scholarship and ongoing research of the postgraduates in LLC.
