This year’s symposium will be centred on the theme of ‘At the Precipice: Humanities in a Changing World’. Brexit. Trump. The housing crisis. A terrible state o’ chassis. 2019 is a year at an impasse. But it is also a year of commemoration and remembrance in terms of technology, transformation, culture, and exploration. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission, the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus and the 500th anniversary of Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe, to only name a few. ‘At the Precipice’ will foster discussion concerning the humanities at a time of flux, but also how the humanities can help us to understand the unknown. We welcome submissions from all postgraduate students in the humanities, as well as those in cross disciplines whose work may satisfy this call for papers and accompanying theme.
By Postgraduates For Postgraduates
NPPSH has set itself apart by focusing on the postgraduate research community in Ireland. The conference is organised by a panel of postgraduate students with a small panel of academic staff to provide oversight and direction when needed.
NPPSH aims to give postgraduates the opportunity to share their research, while also providing them with the opportunity to gain valuable experience organising a conference.
