Fifth MeCCSA Postgraduate Network Conference 2008

University of Sussex, Brighton
Tuesday 1st – Wednesday 2nd July 2008

The MeCCSA (Media, Communications and Cultural Studies Association) Postgraduate Network held its fifth annual conference at the University of Sussex, Brighton on the 1st and 2nd July 2008.

The conference was an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students to present their work to likeminded individuals in a supportive and productive environment. The conference also included workshops from expert academics on contemporary topics such as publishing, teaching, the RAE, and other issues pertinent to postgraduate students working in the highly political and controversial arena that is the University today.
