Thursday 21 May 2015, 10.30AM to 22 May 6.00pm
The first day of the inaugural PhD Symposium saw a stimulating series of seminar-style presentations by current and aspiring PhD students, as well as scholars who had recently completed their doctoral studies. This was complemented on the second with a morning visit to St Michael-le-Belfrey Church with visiting researcher, Associate Professor Lisa Reilly from the University of Virginia, taking the opportunity to hear and discuss her research on the medieval stained glass. The afternoon was then spent visiting stained glass in the parish churches of Kirkby Wharfe, Acaster Malbis and Bolton Percy. This provided the opportunity for students to give presentations on site, further developing their presentation skills, as well as enabling discussions with eminent scholars.
