GLITS is a weekly seminar series organised by the Department of English and Comparative Literature at Goldsmiths, University of London.
A new year, a new series of GLITS!
GLITS is the Goldsmiths Literature Seminar, held each week and organised by Goldsmiths postgraduate students. Every session is a great opportunity to meet other students, present and discuss whatever you’re working on, and gain feedback from the wonderful Goldsmiths community. The series offers a chance to introduce and explain your research to a willing audience, as well as develop your presentation skills and critical thinking – whether this is your first academic paper or not.
Papers on all topics are welcome from literature to linguistics, all types of creative writing, and, of course, inter-disciplinary research. Papers can be at any stage of completion - if you’re looking for feedback on a new idea or creative piece GLITS is a welcoming environment and a good opportunity to receive some constructive critique.
Presentations can be 40-45 minutes long, or sessions can be shared between two 20 minute papers. If you’d like to present as a pair, let us know, or we can pair speakers according to topic or theme. We’d encourage any and all to come along to socialize, listen and present; students and staff at Goldsmiths, and beyond. All papers presented throughout the year will also be considered for publication in the annual, peer-reviewed GLITS-e journal.
GLITS is held every Thursday from 6-8pm in room WTA (ground floor of Warmington Tower).
If you’re interested in presenting, please send us:
- your name, including title, and institutional affiliation
- working title of your paper
- an abstract of approximately 100 words
- preferred length (20 or 40 minutes)
Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you, and to another year of GLITS sessions.
