An international symposium on ‘Multilingual Practices in Early Modern Literary Culture’ will be held at the University of Birmingham on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 January 2019. For more information, see: . The event is open to all, and a full programme and a link to register (including a discounted rate for graduate students) will be posted on the page shortly – contact us for more details.

We’re offering a training and development opportunity for research students based at universities in the M3C network to attend the symposium and gain experience of how an academic event is run. We’re hoping to recruit one (or possibly two) graduate assistants who will attend both days of the symposium, and provide some additional support during the event where needed to ensure that it runs well (e.g. welcoming and registering participants, liaising with catering staff, directing people between locations, ensuring PowerPoints and handouts are ready etc.). This role is unpaid; however, we will cover all registration fees, travel and accommodation for the assistant(s).

If you are interested in this opportunity, then please send an email to Peter Auger ( and Sheldon Brammall ( explaining why you’re interested in the role, and how the symposium’s topic is relevant to your research. Please also confirm your availability for the dates of the symposium, and whether you have any visa restrictions that might make you unable to take up the role (we can discuss more if needed). If there are multiple applicants, we will choose the student(s) whose research interests suggest that they will gain most from the opportunity. We particularly encourage expressions of interest from students working in Modern Languages. Please contact us by Monday 19 November 2018 at the latest.
