We are delighted to report that our PhD student Qudsia Akhtar won first prize in the New World Oral Presentation category at the 13th annual Manchester Metropolitan Postgraduate Conference on 17 March. Congratulations! Qudsia’s paper was entitled ‘Exploring the Fourth Space: Writing the ‘I’ of the British-Pakistani Experience’.
The organisers said: ‘Our committee, delegates and academic judges enjoyed hearing your presentation. We had such a high calibre of submissions in the New World Oral Presentation category. The committee and our academic judges were extremely impressed and engaged with your presentation and audio, along with your responses to delegates’ questions.’
