This PhD Day deals with many forms of reviewing in the study of English literature.
Whether it is getting feedback from a peer-reviewed journal, writing a review for an
academic monograph, or even second reading the work of a colleague, doctoral students
and early-career researchers routinely receive and give professional feedback. Although
this skill may be familiar from peer-review activities throughout one's studies, reviewing
at a professional level requires specific and sustained training.

Three sessions will cover different aspects: 1. An overview of reviews, during which a
panel of three Swiss early-career researchers covering different historical periods will
share their perspectives on various forms of reviewing; 2. Working with peer reviews, a
workshop on the peer review process led by Emma Depledge; and, 3. Publishing, a
presentation by Emily Hockley.

Although the focus will be on reviewing in the academic arena, we will also try to think
about reviewing as a transferable skill that is valuable in various professional domains
outside of the university.
