OSL General Meeting and Research Day

OSL meeting

January 12, 2016; 14:30 – open end. University of Amsterdam.

We cordially invite all our postgraduate members (PhD-candidates, post-docs and staff members) to the first OSL General Meeting and Matchmaking Event on January 12, 2016. The goal of this event is twofold: On the one hand, it is intended as a forum for the discussion and exchange of feedback on upcoming funding applications by OSL members; on the other hand, it is designed to stimulate future collaborations and a culture of synergy and mutual support by literary scholars in times of shrinking resources and fierce competition.
