Following our successful post-graduate conference in 2009, we are organising a second conference to enable post graduate students working on public and private lives across a range of disciplines to meet and discuss their work. Papers of 20 minutes in length are invited alongside presentations which take a different form, e.g. film making, photography, drama. Presentations are invited from Doctoral students, early career researchers and Masters students.

Researchers from across the disciplines are welcome.

Areas of research might include (but are not limited to):

• Autobiographical writing across different media (diaries, books, internet)

• Life History and Oral History Research

• Public and private memorials and acts of commemoration

• Photography and its relationship to the public and the private

• Gender, sexuality, race: the public and the private

• Concepts of public and private space

• Archival and methodological navigations of public and private

If you are interested in participating, please send an abstract of your proposed presentation, of no more than 200 words, by 26 th M arch 2010 to Nicola Clewer: nc95@brighton.ac.uk
