Subject: Digital Modern Languages Call for Doctoral Research Presentations - Deadline 15 May 2020 Digital Modern Languages Seminar Series: Call for Doctoral Research Presentations 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. 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.
