The Centre for Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies organises an 
annual postgraduate Colloquium, where postgraduate students from the 
Centre and the wider Faculty are able to share ideas. The Colloquium is 
an opportunity for postgraduate students and emerging scholars, 
conducting research in literary studies, cultural studies or critical 
theory, to present aspects of their work. The Colloquium seeks to 
provide a forum for stimulating academic exchange in a relaxed and 
supportive atmosphere. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The title of this year’s Colloquium will be 'How Do I Look? – Aesthetics 
through Theory'. While contemporary research in the humanities considers 
a broad range of questions, aesthetics arguably remains a central 
concern for us all. The organisers invite potential participants to 
reflect on their own research with regard to contemporary considerations 
of aesthetics. The overall intention remains the sharing of original 
ideas and research; accordingly, participants are under no obligation to 
narrow their focus.

Prospective participants are invited to present a paper of 25–30 minutes 
length (plus discussion). Proposals should be emailed to
colloquium09 at arts.monash.edu.au by 30th October. Please include a title 
and an abstract of 100–150 words. Presentations incorporating 
audiovisual media are welcome. Please mention any technical requirements 
and preferences as to date and time.

Poster attached.
