The Summer Symposium will be a hybrid event. The Summer Social will be in person.

This event has been programmed by the Early Career Researchers Network (ECRN) and Doctoral Researchers Network (DRN). All interested parties are welcome to attend. You can find out more about the networks here.

The annual Summer Symposium offers an opportunity for doctoral students and early-career researchers to share their work on topics related to British art and art history, broadly defined. The aim of the day is to showcase the diverse range of new research currently being undertaken in the field, and to reflect on contemporary challenges in researching, teaching and curating British art and art history, with a view to stimulating discussion and developing new ideas. A particular emphasis will be placed on new directions in the field of British visual culture, whether that be related to methodology, topic or another new approach. The symposium presents an opportunity for researchers to develop works in progress and foster new relationships, potentially leading to future collaborations.

The full programme for the day will be released shortly.

The Summer Symposium ends at 6pm and will be followed by the Summer Social, a chance for all of our members to relax and share a drink with their peers.

We are pleased to announce that travel grants are available for DRN and ECRN members travelling to London from within the UK to join us for the day. Please contact us at doctoralresearchers@gmail.com if you would like to be considered for a travel grant.
