Students' conferences
14.05.2009 at 09:47:06
 
The institution of graduate students' conferences seems to be rather wide spread (and I'm not sure whether there are really benefits of them that go beyond and/or add to to the benefits of having graduate students present papers at "normal" conference).
 
However: now there is an announcement/CfP for The Birkbeck Early Modern Society’s Third Student Conference: "Revolution and Evolution" (see http://www.emintelligencer.org.uk/2009/05/13/revolution-and-evolution-our-3rd-st udent-conference/ ), which apparently is not restricted to just graduate students. If this is so: this seems to be an interesting format/concept.  
Is such a thing done only at Birkbeck, or also in other places?
What are the experiences with it?
Should we try to start such a thing here. at our institute too?

Now there is a comment/answer IMO very much worth reading by Karen Baston in the comments section over at http://www.emintelligencer.org.uk/2009/05/13/revolution-and-evolution-our-3rd-st udent-conference/ .

Hello,
 
I contacted Dr Karen Baston via email (kgbaston (at) gmail (dot) com) a couple of weeks ago, but still haven't recieved any reply yet. Where can I find the materials from the Birkbeck Early Modern Society 8th Student Conference? My students lost access to their storage of all the materials they need for their research.  
 
Thank you,
James
