This being the very first post of the brand new website and blog of the recently formed Graduate Society for the UCL School of European Language, Culture, and Society, we would first of all like to welcome all SELCS Graduate Students to our website and blog, in which you will find details of all of the activities which come under the organisational and promotional aegis of the SELCS Graduate Society.
The purpose of this website is simply to collate, promote, and reflect on as much of the varied and innovative research work that is being carried out in UCL SELCS, but which may not be immediately visible to Graduate Students and the wider UCL research community. We hope that in doing this, we will bolster the already extensive activities of Graduate Students carrying out work related to European languages, society, and culture. The three main activities which are supported and organised by the Society are as follows:
- An annual interdisciplinary graduate conference organised by UCL’s Thoughtsforward group – more information here.
- A fortnightly seminar group in which graduate students are invited to present aspects of ongoing research in an informal setting. Nibbles and refreshments are kindly provided by FIGS.
The Journal of European Language, Culture, and Society (JELCS) – a forthcoming open-source, peer-reviewed, graduate journal. We will be inviting submissions on an ongoing basis, as well as inviting graduate students to join the editorial committee.
As our Graduate Society is still in its infancy, we are always looking for more people to get involved in any capacity. If you wish to inform us of any event or activity that in any way relates to or comes under the remit of SELCS, please do contact us.
