Journeys in Gothic Study: A Sheffield Gothic Research Event

Sheffield Gothic has exciting news! We have a Gothic research and networking afternoon coming up on Friday 29th April from 1–5pm, featuring talks from a range of Gothic speakers. Join us to learn about recent developments in Gothic research and our speakers’ own unique journeys in academia.

Our speakers are Professor Dale Townshend, Dr Lauren Nixon, Mary Going, Dr Hannah Moss and Dr Amanda Blake Davis, and their combined experience covers everything from finalising a PhD thesis to editing a collection on the history of the Gothic. Attendees will have the chance to ask questions about our speakers’ varied research and experiences of academia, whether this is the transition to an ECR position or the adventures of publishing. There will also be time for networking at the end of the afternoon, where attendees can follow-up with speakers more informally as well as making connections with each other!

The event will be held in-person in Lecture Theatre 7 of The Diamond, University of Sheffield, but don’t worry if you’re not able to travel to be with us – we’ll also be livestreaming the talks online through Google Meets.

For more information and to register for free please go to our Eventbrite page.

We hope to see many of you there, either in person or virtually! We’re very excited to hear what our speakers have to say and we’re sure it will be an enjoyable afternoon. And if you want even more time with fellow Gothic enthusiasts, the Centre for the History of the Gothic is hosting a social at the Meltdown gaming bar in Sheffield from 6.30pm that evening, so why not join us for a few cocktails and Gothic games?
