Thesis Festival 11th May, 13:00-15:30

It is once again time for the annual Thesis Festival here at the English Department and the awarding of the H.W Donner Essay Prize. The Festival will take place in Kramer (M220) this Thursday.

The festival is an informal occasion for those, and others, who have or are about to complete their BA or MA thesis to present their hard work in a brief presentation (10-15min) and discuss the ups and downs of thesis writing. The presentation is informal and therefore does not require any Powerpoint presentations or similar and is instead an opportunity for people to present what they found interesting in their thesis work along with possible struggles, challenges and points of interest.

You can freely choose the focus of your presentation. The audience is likely to expect some information about the topic, aim and scope, research question(s), methods, materials and (main) findings of your thesis, including your arguments and conclusions. Along with any other information or findings that you may consider pertinent.

The event will start with the Thesis Festival and is followed by the awarding of the H.W. Donner Essay Prize.

All are welcome to partake in the festival and the refreshments.
