Postgraduates at the 2021 conference

Img 0612

The Society for French Studies is keen to support postgraduate research at Masters, MPhil and PhD levels. We warmly invite postgraduate students to present their research at this year's conference (taking place online).

With up to ten different parallel sessions, the annual conference brings together hundreds of researchers in the field of French studies. This is a great opportunity to share your research not only with fellow students but also with more advanced scholars.

Please see the section below for information on presenting your research at the 2021 online conference.

Postgraduate video presentations

To showcase postgraduate research projects at Master's and PhD level we are pleased to invite expressions of interest from postgraduate students to create a short video presentation (in French or English; duration: 5-10 mins) of their project or a key aspect of their research at this year’s virtual meeting of the Society for French Studies, to take place 28-30 June.

Videos may be created using, for example, Power Point - especially if you wish to present your research using slides - but any other software is appropriate as long as the video created is in MP4 format. The pre-recorded videos will be made available to delegates in our virtual conference space throughout the conference. They are therefore not a live presentation, and your attendance will not be required at any particular time. A prize will be awarded for the best submission to replace our annual poster prize this year.

This call is not limited to specific topics, though please outline the topic and/or argument of your proposed video in a short email expressing your interest in this format by 10th June to the Conference Officer, Dr Victoria Turner at the following address: The final video should then be submitted by 20th June.

For further information on the conference, please email the PG Officer Melissa Pawelski:
