BCUR (British Conference of Undergraduate Research) is an annual conference in which undergraduates across the UK meet up at a designated university and present their research on a chosen topic.
I had to choose a topic that I have researched at Undergraduate level, and so I chose to focus on the impact of German Expressionism on contemporary film (my dissertation explores this at a much broader level), and apply this to the case study of Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.
My proposal has been accepted to present in the form of a poster presentation displaying my research. This is a brilliant opportunity for me to be involved with and will provide me with experience at an academic conference.
I will write a post summarising my experience of the conference once I have attended in April.
