About the event
The Cambridge Medieval Literature and Culture Seminar (“CamMedSem”) is delighted to invite you to our Student Workshop to present your ideas. Each participant is invited to prepare some brief points on a particular aspect, topic or text they are working on or have worked on in Old French and/or Occitan; we envisage short presentations of about 3-5 minutes, though there is some flexibility with this. You might use this space to workshop ideas for your Long Essay or Year Abroad Project, to discuss arguments from an Optional Dissertation or a piece of MPhil coursework. With exams now in take-home format, Part IB and Part II students may wish to present a close reading of a passage, or an argument you’ve been developing in a supervision essay and would like to think about further. You are welcome to use PowerPoint or other presentation software, perhaps presenting a slide similar in format to a research poster, but this is not required. Please note: we’re not looking for polished pieces; we’d just love to hear about your work in progress! We’ll discuss all ideas together informally after the presentations. We hope that the workshop will be an open space to exchange ideas and friendly, constructive feedback, and will give us all the chance to come together as a community of medieval-minded researchers.
