Postgraduate research conducted by students at the School of Modern Languages has been showcased at a recent conference.

The 2023 Interconnected Worlds Postgraduate Researchers Conference took place on 6 and 7 June 2023 and was held in the School of Modern Languages.

45 people from across the UK attended the conference across both days which was organised by Postgraduate researchers from within the School of Modern Languages. The school and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) also supported the conference.

A total of 30 papers on 9 panels were presented across the two-day event and covered a variety of topics from humanities to social science. Research presented at the conference ranged from ocean governance and international relations to case studies in creative subtitling practice.

A research surgery and a number of method cafés were also held throughout the conference and a keynote address was delivered by Dr Matthew Wall from Swansea University.

Many students who attended the conference hailed it a success. One student wrote: “It was a good experience and opportunity to meet participants from different fields and of various interests.” Another noted that: “It was a marvellous experience for me: I don't think I could have had a better way in the world of research, as everything was top-notch,” and a third said: “It was a great opportunity to meet with and talk to many different PhD students about their research.”
