Regular residential seminars are central to the programme of the Graduate School. These are arranged twice each year, principally for discussion of the doctoral students’ own texts. Each January there is a PM Residential Seminar, where the most recent intake of doctoral students present their thesis projects, with doctoral students of previous intakes acting as opponents. Each September sees an Autumn Residential Seminar, where all except the most recent intake of doctoral students are expected to present texts based on their thesis projects. Every second year this residential seminar has an international flavour, expressing the ambition of the Graduate School to encourage international publication of work. On these occasions the texts are expected to be in English.
