“Research in Residence”, the UCT English Postgraduate Conference, took place on Thursday 24 October. Six postgraduate students presented on their research, and were given feedback by staff members and fellow students. They are to be commended on the wonderful diversity and complexity of their presentations. We look forward to next year’s conference.

The presentations were:

Trish Coetzee: ‘“Do not forget the women”: Hybrid Tragedy and Women in Peter Abrahams’ A Wreath for Udomo (1956)’
