This summer saw the resumption of the annual PhD Writing & Publishing Workshop at the Monash Prato Centre in Italy. Led by staff from the University of Monash, it took place over three days, 20-22 June, at their palazzo in the Tuscan city. Prior to the global pandemic, Warwick had participated in this event and this year three postgraduate research students from the Faculty of Arts and Professor David Lambert CADRE Director joined staff and students from Australia, Malaysia, India, Italy and elsewhere in the UK. The event included staff-led workshops on the fundamentals of academic writing and publication – from choosing journals and structuring articles to responding to feedback and building an academic track record. The heart of the event was the sessions devoted to the practice of writing itself. Supported by allocated academic staff who were on-hand to help with planning, the presentation of arguments and the choice of language, these provided great opportunities for focused work in a supportive environment.

Coventry's year as 'UK City of Culture 2021' draws to a close in April 2022. The University of Warwick will celebrate Coventry's magnificent tenure with a campus finale of the Resonate Festival, taking place from the 19th - 21st April 2022.
But what does it mean to be a 'City of Culture', and from where did this scheme originate? Who chooses the 'winning' city, what sorts of criteria are used to select the winner, and what is expected of a city once they have been awarded the title?
In this episode of #FacultyofArtsatHomeLink opens in a new window, PhD Researcher Emily Dunford - whose research specifically focuses on Coventry's tenure as UK City of Culture 2021 - will answer these questions and more, providing insights into the wider social, economic and political aspects of the scheme and how it shapes the places where we live.
