PGR-led Conferences

Since March 2015, there has been a number of conferences and workshops organised and run by Postgraduates from the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies. LCS was delighted to support these events by offering partial funding to the organisers.

The conferences show the diversity of the School, as they range from Cultural and Military History through Translation and Literary studies to Classical scholarship.  You can read the available conference reports by clicking on the links.
