    painting of Saint JeromeFar from being concerned solely with recorded facts and observable phenomena, academic research shares with literature and drama a desire to understand the world through forms of narrative that tell us who we are and explore the worlds in which we live.

    The ECPS Postgraduate Colloquium for 2012, Investigator/Narrator, invites contributions from postgraduate students across all ECPS disciplines to share the narratives they have uncovered, or are themselves creating through their own form of critical inquiry.
