Reading Group Prompts

This month’s reading group is on 10th November at 1.30pm (GMT), chaired by Emily Smith.

Instead of our usual Reading Group, this week we are trying something different: a Problem Group. In this session, each person has 5-15 minutes (depending on how many people turn up!) to discuss a problem that has been puzzling them in their research and we can all respond with suggestions and solutions. For example:

  • How do I reference [insert crazy thing here]?
  • Does anyone know anything about [early modern music/werewolves/obscure point of law]?
  • Which research databases are useful for x…?
  • Does this sentence/paragraph in my writing make sense? 

If you would like to send your problems in advance – either for someone else to read out (anonymously or no!) or to get a first opinion – please feel free to email us. We hope that this session will be a very relaxed and friendly, albeit slightly Poirot-esque, brainstorming and, hopefully, successful solution-finding space!

If you’d like to join us, please contact for the Zoom link. For a monthly reminder of upcoming reading groups, you can sign up to our mailing list.
