Form and Forgetting

The fifth Annual Cambridge AHRC DTP Conference will bring together students from within the current Cambridge AHRC DTP cohorts and from partner institutions of international standing to facilitate the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and the development of collaborative networks. The Cambridge AHRC DTP is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council UK (AHRC) and exists to provide studentships and personal and professional development at PhD level in the following broad AHRC-designated subject domains: history, thought and systems of belief; creative and performing arts; cultures and heritage; languages and literatures.
