The organisers are currently seeking papers, in English or Welsh,  for the first Creative Industries Postgraduate Conference Wales, co-organised by Swansea University, Aberystwyth University and Glamorgan University. This is a bilingual conference with two main aims:

  • a means to create a national community of postgraduate students within the creative industries. 
They invite paper submissions from students who are studying towards a MA, MA through Research (MRes), MPhil or PhD degree. They are eager to receive applications from students who are studying any aspect of Film, Television, Radio, Journalism, New Media, Theatre and Performance in the context of Wales OR students who are researching any aspect of Film, Television, Radio, Journalism, New Media, Theatre and Performance in an international context but writing their research thesis through the medium of Welsh.

In addition to the paper presentations by postgraduate students, the aim of this free conference is to organise sessions which will give students the opportunity to consider how to publish their research and how to make their work relevant to a wider audience. There will also be an opportunity to meet leading academics in the field of the creative industries who will be responding to your presentations and advising you on your work, in order to support your development as young researchers.

The best paper presented during the conference will be considered for publishing in either Cyfrwng: Media Wales Journal – Cyfnodolyn Cyfryngau Cymru or in the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol journal Gwerddon. Further information on this opportunity will be made available soon.
