The English Department at the Université de Lausanne and the Swiss Association of University Teachers of English (SAUTE) have the pleasure of welcoming you to the 17th ESSE Conference in Lausanne August 2024. As is tradition, the conference will consist of a mixture of plenary lectures, parallel lectures, roundtables, seminars, posters, and the Doctoral Symposium. Details of each format and how to participate can be found below.
One of the features of the 17th ESSE Conference is the Doctoral Symposium, which continues an ESSE tradition dating from 2012. It is designed to provide a platform for young scholars to present and receive feedback on their work. The Symposium will be fully integrated into the conference.
The Symposium is open to PhD students who are writing their theses in English Studies and are at least in the second year of work on their doctorate at the time of the submission of their application. To be eligible, either their supervisor or they themselves must be known to the Treasurer of ESSE as a member of an ESSE-affiliated national association (or, in relevant countries, of a department that belongs to an ESSE-affiliated national association) at the moment of application.
