Stone upon Stone: Land, Labour and Consciousness in World-Literary Perspective. A talk by Professor Neil Lazarus from the English and Comparative Literature Department.

Thursday 7th December 6:15pm - 7:15 pm S0.11

Have you ever wondered where the contemporary field of academic research is heading? What new ideas and concepts are being explored, what theories are being formulated? How Warwick contributes to the academic conversation?

This new series of talks by undergraduate research journal 'Warwick Uncanny: Journal of Literature, Theory and Modernity' aims to provide an answer to those questions. We will ask academics you might be familiar with - they might be one of your seminar tutors, or one of your lecturers - to talk about their current research projects. This way, you can get a glimpse of what the academic universe looks like beyond the scope of undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

*** Light refreshments will be provided. We will be accepting donations - your spare change can help us fund our future events! ***

Join us for our second event, meet the Warwick Uncanny team and ask us any questions you might have about undergraduate research.
