My paper at the IRSCL Congress 2017 was a success; the Postgraduate Research Fund helped me get there.
My trip to Canada to present at the International Research Society of Children’s Literature Congress 2017 was a great success: not only did the presentation of my paper go well, with one member of the audience saying it was an inspiration to her and how she thought of childhood, but I have learnt so much, and met such wonderful people. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to engage with the foremost research in the field – for both an intellectual and cultural exchange.
This has been such an enriching experience for me; from everything I have learnt and shared, to the new friends I have made. This would not have been possible without the funding the School provided. I am incredibly grateful, and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much to the Department!
