Call for Papers: The Architecture of Death (London, 11 March 2016)

477974-11507-800[1]The Mausolea & Monuments Trust Student Symposium
The Forum, Bloomsbury Baptist Church

Friday 11 March 2016

Call for papers of 20 minutes: for the inaugural student symposium of The Mausolea
& Monuments Trust to be held in The Forum, Bloomsbury Baptist Church, London
on Friday 11 March 2016. This event will provide an opportunity to present an aspect of your research in front of an engaged and extremely well-informed audience, providing ample time for discussion and forging new links and contacts.
The Mausolea & Monuments Trust is a highly regarded institution; acting as
guardian to six important mausolea, campaigning for the preservation of many
more, and running a series of scholarly lectures and visits each year:
www.mmtrust.org.uk

The theme of the symposium is deliberately broad ranging, allowing varied
perspectives on the purpose, design, construction, use, importance, care,
conservation, history and legacy of mausolea and monuments. It is hoped that we
will explore the field through a range of interdisciplinary approaches, showcasing
current post-graduate research on a variety of subjects. Papers should be illustrated
by PowerPoint, and speakers should expect to take questions following their
presentation. It is hoped that a selection of papers will be published in a special
edition of the Mausolea and Monuments Trust journal, Mausolus. Speakers coming
from outside London will be offered a £20 contribution towards their travel
expenses. If you are interested in contributing, please submit an abstract of 300
words maximum and a brief biography to Frances Sands: fsands@soane.org.uk by
Monday 31st August 2015.
