Our Postgraduate Society, Re:Search, offers our postgraduates opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with other postgraduates, especially at the Master's and doctoral levels. Honours students are welcome. The group usually meets once a month. Join us to hear how others are experiencing their studies and to get support on your research journey.
A new special interest, and interdisciplinary Faculty Research Theme, under the direction of by Prof Molly Brown, is The Child and the Story, which is intended to encourage more wide-ranging academic studies of children and narratives, focused not simply on the acquisition of improved reading fluency but also on larger issues such as what children are given to read, what languages they read in, what ideas are being promulgated in their stories, how oral traditions feed into or are excluded from literary culture, how narrative can address trauma or play a role in individuation and how young readers/listeners respond to, reject or appropriate the narratives transmitted to them.
