VENUE LOCATION AND GETTING HERE
Q: Where will the colloquium be held?
A: The colloquium will be held at the Humanities Research Institute building of the University of Sheffield. The full postal address of the venue is: Humanities Research Institute, The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S3 7QY. The map below shows the location of the building.
Q: How can I get to the venue? Is there parking nearby?
A: Parking nearby is limited, although there are a handful of street parking spaces (pay and display) on Leavygreave Road and Gell Street, available on a first come first serve basis. If you are travelling to Sheffield, we would advise taking public transport - the train station is well-connected to the University by taxi (6 minutes) and tram (15 minutes), and the nearest tram stop (University) is across the road from the venue.
Q: Will you be able to reimburse travel costs?
A: Unfortunately at the moment, due to the limited budget with which we are running the colloquium, we are unable to reimburse or subsidise travel costs.
Q: Will lunch/refreshments be provided on the day?
A: We will be providing tea and coffee at the colloquium throughout the day. For lunchtime it is unlikely that we will be able to to provide a complimentary lunch; however, the colloquium venue is adjacent to our department café (which will be open on the day), as well as several local cafés and restaurants, and we will schedule a lunch break to enable all attendees to get something to eat.
Q: Which referencing system should the abstract conform to, if any?
A: As a School of Languages, our work normally conforms to the MHRA referencing system. However, as long as your referencing is logical, coherent and consistent, we will not be strictly enforcing a referencing system on the abstracts that we receive.
Q: Should I count references towards the abstract word count?
A: Yes, any references in your abstract should be included in your overall word count of 250 words.
