Truth, lies and myths in history: is ‘fake news’ old news?

Nottingham Trent University’s Postgraduate History Conference team are pleased to announce this year’s conference, taking place on the 21st June 2017.

With the new media focus on ‘Fake News’, this one-day interdisciplinary conference invites papers that deal with the questions of truth and lies, myth-making, propaganda, and historical subjectivity within historical and academic research. Is ‘Fake News’ a new thing? Researchers may choose to consider the difficulties of finding ‘truth’ through their research, or how the subjects of their research dealt with controlling facts, information, and even reality.

BFWG Research Presentations Day 2017

BFWG (British Federation of Women Graduates) founded in 1907

Saturday June 10th 2017at BFWG HQ, 4 Mandeville Courtyard, 142 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 4NB

All welcome

BFWG holds a Research Presentations Day each year at which women postgraduate students are invited to give short presentations of their research work to a general audience.  A prize of £100 is offered for the presentation judged ‘best’ in terms of quality of presentation and ability to communicate the subject to an educated but general audience.  Those interested in making a presentation should go to www.bfwg.org.uk to download an abstract submission form.  Abstracts should be submitted to rpd@bfwg.org.uk.

Closing date for abstracts is Friday April 28th 2017

It may be necessary to make a selection from abstracts submitted if there are too many entries for the time available.  Please note: BFWG is not able to pay travel or other expenses.

All undergraduates, postgraduates, members of BFWG and others who are interested will be very welcome to attend the RPD even if they do not wish to submit a paper.  There is no charge for bona fide students, whether or not they are presenting a paper, but there is a charge of £10 on the door for others.  (A sandwich lunch is provided).  The Research Presentations Day is usually a good opportunity to meet other postgraduate women students and to look objectively at the presentation styles of others.  It can be a useful learning experience and an opportunity for networking. 

If you wish to attend the day please contact: Dr Elizabeth Poskitt: rpd@bfwg.org.uk if possible before June 3rd 2017 .
