Quadrivium VII Research Training for Medieval Textual Studies
University of Glasgow
16 - 17 February 2012
Quadrivium is an annual training event, run by postgraduates and academic staff and designed to offer UK and Eire postgraduates doctoral research training in the area of medieval textual studies, both in generic graduate attributes and in specialised research skills.
Quadrivium has proved hugely successful, attracting postgraduates from institutions across the UK and Eire. It allows postgraduates in medieval textual studies to develop their transferable skills in a subject-specific area and provides a unique opportunity to network with established researchers and other graduate students in their field. This year’s event continues the excellent training offered since 2005, and will focus around the theme of ‘Employability and Entrepreneurship: Careers in Academia and Beyond’. High profile academics from across the UK have been invited to present, to chair roundtable discussions and to facilitate training activities, and a number of speakers have been invited who have experience of careers outwith academia, namely the British Library and the BBC. While the event is designed primarily for UK and Eire postgraduates in medieval textual studies, students engaged in medieval studies more broadly within the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow are also invited to attend.
