Building on the work of our fantastic colleagues in the Department of Politics, History and Sociology, the Department of English, Media and Culture will be running a series of Lockdown Lectures throughout June and July. Featuring talks on Shakespeare Festivals in Europe from Professor Nicoleta Cinpoes, monstrous twins and The Duchess of Malfi from Dr Sharon Young and English Literature, as well as a Q and A between Dr Whitney Standlee and acclaimed poet and member of our Creative Writing team, Ruch Stacey and a paper on social media, gender and youth culture from the Media team’s Dr Barbara Mitra, the series allows you to be at the cutting edge of what we do in our department without leaving the comfort of your own home!
To ‘attend’ any of the above virtual lectures, click on the link to our Sway page and then click on the title of the lecture you wish to attend at its start time. You will be taken straight through to the virtual classroom to enjoy the talk and, if you wish, take part in our discussions. Missed a session? No problem, all of the talks will be recorded and links provided to allow you to enjoy them in your own time.
