Digital Modern Languages Seminar Series: Call for Doctoral Research

The Digital Modern Languages
(https://digitalmodernlanguages.wordpress.com/) convenors are planning a
series of virtual events to bring together research and teaching in
Modern Languages which engages with digital culture, media and
technologies. For our first event, we would like to showcase the new and
exciting research currently undertaken by PhD students across Modern
Languages and related departments. The aim is also to provide a forum
for doctoral researchers to present and receive feedback on their work
in a supportive environment, particularly at a time when such
opportunities may be more limited than in normal circumstances.

As a result, we are planning to host a virtual seminar from 3-5pm (GMT)
on Wednesday 3 June 2020, including four 15-minute presentations from
doctoral researchers, followed by a Q & A session with all presenters.
To ensure a supportive virtual environment, the seminar will only be
open to those who register in advance and presenters will be able to
choose whether they would like their presentation recorded/shared more
widely after the event. We will also support presenters in advance to
ensure they are comfortable and familiar with the virtual seminar format.

If you’re interested in contributing to the seminar, please submit a
title and brief abstract of around 150 words (200 max) on your proposed
presentation, with your name, institution and year of PhD study/completion.

Presenters should be either current or recently completed PhD students
(within 1 year of their viva) from a languages or closely related
department. In line with the series’ aim, we will adopt an inclusive
approach, both thematically and in terms of the languages of specialism
of seminar speakers. Areas of potential but not exclusive interest
include: digital cultural studies, digital archives and databases,
digital ethnography, digital discourse analysis, language teaching and
digital technologies, translation technologies and digital/computational
approaches to the study of language and text (all with a primary focus
on languages other than English).

Proposals should be submitted by email by Friday 15 May (midnight GMT)
to naomi.wells@sas.ac.uk and paul.spence@kcl.ac.uk. Please also contact
us if you have any questions about contributing to the seminar.

If you’re currently supervising digital research in Modern Languages,
please also share this opportunity with any of your own PhD students who
might be interested in contributing.
