The Society for Liturgical Study and the Mirfield Liturgical Institute
Postgraduate Study Day 2019
SATURDAY 30 March 2019
College of the Resurrection, Mirfield, WF14 0BW
10.30 a.m. – 4.30 p.m.
COST : £15 (to include lunch)
As well as the opportunity to hear our Keynote speaker Peter McGrail, proposals for papers are invited from postgraduate students working on liturgical topics or in fields that overlap with liturgical studies. Papers should be about 20 minutes in length, to be followed by up to 10 minutes of questions and discussion. The day should prove to be a fruitful forum for discussing and developing our research interests, and papers may be offered concerning early stage research with a view to developing research proposals and obtaining feedback, or may be at a later stage in development. Some of the papers offered in the past at such study days have been published in Anaphora (the journal of the SLS) and the editors, some of whom will be present at the study day, will be happy consider papers for publication, subject to acceptance following peer review.
Please send proposals for papers to by 28 February 2019. Presenters will be notified as soon as possible thereafter about the shape of the final programme.
