Dear all postgraduates of French and Francophone studies,
The 2011 Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France postgraduate poster competition will take place at the society’s annual conference at the University of Stirling, 1-3 September 2011 (http://www.asmcf.org/conference/).
The poster competition aims to provide postgraduates with the opportunity to present their research as part of the conference programme, receive feedback from specialists in the field, and so prepare them for presenting their work at future conferences.
Posters need to be A1 size and illustrate, with words, images and diagrams, the essence of a research project in a clear and eye-catching way, to appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike. The theme of the conference is Continuities and Discontinuities ? France across the generations. However, posters don’t need to follow this theme and can be on any topic relating to French and Francophone studies.
There will be a dedicated poster session during the conference at which postgraduates will have the opportunity to give short and informal presentations of their posters. Other delegates are invited to take a closer look at the posters and speak to postgraduates about their research. The posters will then be on display in a prominent place for the remainder of the conference, providing plenty of opportunities for discussion of your research. Alongside these benefits, the winner of the poster competition will receive £100 of books from Intellect Books (www.intellectbooks.co.uk).
The poster designed by the winner of last year’s competition can be found at http://www.asmcf.org/funding/.
