The Work In Progress Conference (WIP) aims to engage with comment and criticism inspired by the seven deadly sins from disciplines within the humanities. WIP aims to provide a relaxed, supportive, but professional environment in which postgraduates and early career researchers can present papers.
Researchers, postgraduates and honours students are invited to submit abstracts connected with this year’s theme. Topics and questions may include, but are not limited to:
- How are the seven deadly sins used within contemporary or classical texts?
- Has there been a shift in how the sins are represented or framed?
- Why is there an enduring interest in the seven deadly sins?
- How do the seven deadly sins connect with ideas relating to governmentality, consumerism or sexuality?
