About Inventions of the Text:
Established in 2008, Inventions of the Text is a fortnightly staff-student forum run by postgraduate students from the Department of English Studies at Durham University. It is an opportunity for postgraduate students and staff from Durham University and other institutions to present their research in the form of a 45-minute paper, and to contribute to lively discussion on key issues raised.
