SLF0006 - Researching European Film and TV

Three panels of work-in-progress presentations by PhD students from different academic institutions working on related issues, a series of research training and career development sessions led by experts in the field and related very specifically to research in film and television. The event has been shaped with the idea of giving PhD students researching in this field the opportunity to share ideas, research methodologies and knowledge within an informal but still academic environment. The idea behind it is bringing together PhD students at different stages in their work in order to give them the possibility to confront each other and potentially contributing to each other’s research. Doing this event under the auspices of our WRoCAH PhD Network, will give visibility to the network itself and our website

The White Rose Philosophy Postgraduate Forum (WRPPF) is a research network between postgraduate students of Philosophy at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, and Hull. The WRPPF organises tri-annual workshops, held in rotation between the four universities, at which a student from each university presents their research to an audience of peers. The WRPPF reaches out to a large philosophy postgraduate community and our meetings has provided the ideal opportunity for postgraduates to both present their research and hear about others’ research in an environment that is at the same time less formal than an academic conference and more challenging than an intra-departmental meeting. Our Forum meetings have therefore given the postgraduates, at York and beyond, an exciting experience and are invaluable in preparing us for a future career in academia.
