II Research Workshop in English Studies POSTPONED


Dear ASYRAS members,

 

Given the current situation caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in Spain, we have decided to postpone our II Research Workshop in English Studies, which was going to take place in May in Oviedo.
If everything goes well, we will be able to meet you all in Oviedo in September, once the situation is hopefully under control. The new programme, together with a new deadline to register and send your proposals, will be published once the new date has been confirmed. Thank you for your understanding. Please, keep posted for further information.
The Organising Committee

COVID-19 outbreak


Dear members,

 
This is a message from the Executive Board of ASYRAS for you to stay calm and do your best in this moment of unrest. We know the last days have been difficult for the academic community, with several universities closing their doors due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 
 
We just want to let you know that ASYRAS will keep working and that we will still be here for you. We do not know what the situation will be in May for our Workshop in Oviedo, but preparations will not stop and we will let you know of any information we get in this respect.
 
The CFP for our journal, GAUDEAMUS, is of course still open, and the reviewing process will continue as planned afterwards. 
 
We encourage you to follow all measures suggested by both sanitary and academic authorities, and to make use of this time to keep working, reading and researching.
 
Best wishes,
 
The Executive Board of ASYRAS

10th Anniversary – Research Workshop in English Studies: Skills, Challenges and New Horizons


On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the Association of Young Researchers on Anglophone Studies (ASYRAS), the executive board of the Association has decided to organize a formative workshop for senior students of the Degree in English Studies, postgrad students, doctoral students and young researchers in English Studies. The workshop will be held on May 25-26, 2018 at the Sede Universitaria de la Ciudad de Alicante and various national and international lecturers have been invited to talk about the implementation of research tools in the domain of English Philology, from a linguistic and literary perspective.

This event is intended to be particularly useful for students who are at an early stage of their research career. The workshops constitute a discussion forum in which experienced researchers will share their strategies and tools such as the elaboration of a research project, the outline of an academic oral presentation, the implementation of a bibliographical search, the search and application for undergrad and postgrad funding as well as the understanding of more technical information on accrediting systems and platforms in Spain or publication’s quality indexes. There will also be an open session in which students can bring their research concerns, and lecturers will assist them in fulfilling their goals.

You can see our provisional programme and further information here.

A certificate of attendance (10h.) will be provided to participants in the event. Registration for the event is available in this form.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Alicante!
