Our popular public lecture series, Late Summer Lectures, is making its comeback in Durham later in 2016. If you are a postgraduate or postdoctoral researcher at a North East university, this is a great opportunity to showcase your work and to reach out to a wider audience. 

The organisers are currently seeking individual and group proposals on any aspect of literature or narrative studies. You do not need to be researching specifically in English literature. Other disciplines that meet the call are welcome, as are proposals of an interdisciplinary nature. Your proposal must be accessible for a public audience, both for those attending the series and potentially listening via podcasts on this site. For more details, see the poster below.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be sent to by 1 June 2016. As a reminder of the wide variety of topics covered by previous speakers, here are podcasts from the last two series.
