We’re starting off Page Breaks 2021-2022 on 15 September with a discussion of seasonal culture – what it is, who defines it, how its impact registers, and more!
On Wednesday 01 September (from 9:30 am), we will be hosting our monthly Research day. This is an opportunity to work on your own research (while knowing that others are working at the same time), with periodic zoom calls to set and reflect on goals.
After much discussion, it’s finally happening! We’re talking about The Crown.
This week, we’re dabbling in flash fiction!
This week, we’re reflecting on pizza, and more broadly on how food can help us think more intently about authenticity and identity.
This week, we’re reflecting on the romance of an unsolved mystery, what it takes to be truly ‘off grid’, and the ethics of using technology to find someone who doesn’t want to be found.
We’re back! Page Breaks this week will be on Wed 21 April at 1pm. We’ll be returning to our cherished ‘Works Loved’ format. Find out more about Works Loved here: https://blog.bham.ac.uk/englitpostgrad/works-loved/
