Speakers Series 2013-2014

The Cultural Studies Ph.D. Program offers an annual Speakers Series to our Trent community and to the wider public.  These talks are open to everyone, free of charge.  Typically, they are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm in Scott 105 at Traill College, and are followed by a question and answer period, and then cordial conversation at the Trend pub, with cash bar. 

The speakers’ series brings distinguished visitors to Trent University to discuss their latest books, and to describe their scholarship and perspectives on a wide range of objects and issues in cultural studies, including the arts, the sciences, the configurations, textures, and conflicts in modern culture, and the changing nature of contemporary knowledge. 

Research Seminars

Arising from the Cultural Studies Ph.D. Speakers’ Series, the Ph.D. Program offers a series of intensive research seminars with a number of our distinguished visitors.  These research seminars are organized to provide an opportunity specifically for Cultural Studies Ph.D. faculty and students, and our collegial network, to engage in depth with cutting edge intellectuals and their current work. 

To focus these seminars, our guests recommend special readings of manageable length which participants are invited to read before the seminar.  The Ph.D. office makes an effort to prepare some of these materials for pick-up.
