PaperFormJanuary 31, 2011
PaperForm is made of two words: paper and form. Brought together, these words also contain the word perform. Yes, everything’s in the title.
PaperForm is a reading group that looks at papers and their form. In other words, its main concern is the formal aspect of the delivery of papers (e.g. at conferences).
PaperForm considers a conference paper as a performative act: the reading group has a sustained interest in performativity and its implications in the life of an ‘academic’.
PaperForm focuses deliberately on practice, as opposed to theory.
PaperForm gives you space to present papers and receive feedback on the formal aspect of your delivery in a friendly and laid-back environment.
PaperForm aims at bringing postgraduates together to share more or less ‘academic’ interests.
PaperForm, although it is all about form, is definitely an informal workshop that takes place every two weeks on Mondays. It’s open to all postgraduates in ENCAP.
The PaperForm workshops will resume on Monday 31st January at 4.10pm, in room 2.46.
