The French Postgraduate Seminar at the IMLR aims to provide postgraduate students in the field of French Studies with the opportunity to present their research findings, trial-run papers, and meet their peers. Open to students at the London universities and further afield, the seminar also provides a forum to feed back on research experience, share their successes and voice their concerns.
The French Postgraduate Seminar is an initiative intended to complement the Modern Languages Forum and French Postgraduate Conference, held at the IMLR. The seminar is convened jointly by Dr Dominic Glynn (Lecturer in French at the IMLR) and postgraduate students, Adina Stroia (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Oliver Kenny (email@example.com).
