CEMS ANU Work in Progress Morning
Wednesday June 2, 2021. 9.15am – 1pm
Nine members of CEMS presented short papers during the Work in Progress Morning, which fell into three sessions: Literature and Drama, Historical Linguistics and Sociolinguistics, and History and Material Culture, reflecting the multidisciplinarity of the centre. We were especially pleased to welcome three HDR members at various stages of their candidature who presented compelling accounts of their research.
Lucy Matthews presented “What’s mine is yours and what is yours is mine: Queer women adapting queer women, a Practice as Research study of William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure and John Lyly’s Galatea.” Charbel El-Khaissi spoke on the “Sociolinguistics of Script: Cues into Intergenerational Language Attrition,” and Sarah Hodge presented “A Composite Order of Dress: Understanding the Development of Women’s Historic Styles in Britain, 1757-1830.” See the full program and abstracts here.
We look forward to the next WIP meeting, towards the end of semester two.
