You are invited to this year’s Literary and Cultural Studies (LCS) Postgraduate Conference to be held on Tuesday 22 November 2016 in the South Wing, 1st Floor, Menzies Building, Clayton Campus, Monash University.

This will be followed by a keynote address delivered by Dr Michelle Smith, an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Communication and Creative Arts, Deakin University.
Alongside panels featuring the work of students from across the LCS Program, this year’s conference will include a workshop with Dr Kate Cregan, Coordinator of Mastering Journal Writing (formerly Graduate Researchers in Print), on how to convert a conference paper into an academic article for publication. The day’s proceedings will conclude with a session from Peter Rose, editor of the Australian Book Review, on reviewing work, what it demands and how to get (more of) it.
Members from all streams of the LCS Program will present their work, and academics from across the program will be present and will chair the conference sessions. Please come along to support your peers and friends!
Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and post-conference drinks will be provided.
