JFIGS Friday Forum

Call for Themes

The Octagon Friday Forum series, formerly known as the JFIGS Friday Forum, welcomes proposals for the summer term Forum event from graduate students and staff from any department across the Faculties of Arts & Humanities and Social & Historical Sciences. Octagon Friday Forum events are supported by Joint Faculty funding and by the Institute of Advanced Studies.

Please submit your proposed theme by Friday 1 April to Catherine Thomson, Joint Faculty Marketing and Communications Manager.

Octagon hosts regular forums which encourage both staff and graduate students to contribute to academic discussion.

The full day forum encourages staff and graduate students to offer brief (10 minute) contributions on a particular topic. It is an opportunity to discuss a particular theme in an interdisciplinary context.

All staff and graduate students are invited to either offer their thoughts in a brief paper, or simply attend a session that is of interest.
