What are the arts and humanities if not an assemblage of fragments? The definition of fragmentation is “the process or state of breaking or being broken into fragments.” In this conference, postgraduate candidates across the humanities come together what the concept of fragments means in their field of study. The scope is expansive: from history to literature to law, we welcome varied conceptualisations of fragmentation.
The first day of the conference will be held online and the second day will be in-person in Chancellor’s Hall in Senate House. Recordings of both days will be made available after the event where speakers have consented to record.
