BA English and History student presents at the 2017 Undergraduate Research Experience Festival

The Undergraduate Research Experience Festival is annual celebration for all undergraduates to showcase their work and research to fellow students and staff.

Earlier this month BA English and History student Lauren Devine joined a number of talented and passionate undergraduate researchers from across the Faculty to present at the annual celebration. 

Lauren's talk focused on the literary representations of the Figure of the Child's Soldier. After the five-minute research talk, Lauren chatted to staff and students about her research and experience of being an undergraduate researcher at the University.

Amy Wardle, an English Literature student, presented her research on the nature of nature writing, and Mirella Cooper (English and French) spoke about applying theories of hospitality to investigate how a number of authors offer refugees a voice to tell their stories in the language of the host country. 

The Undergraduate Research Experience (UGRE) is now in it's seventh year and continues to be a fantastic celebration of the achievements of our undergraduate researchers. Find out more about the event on Facebook.
