Cake T-Days

Mémoire discussion group for MA students


As an informal mémoire support group, Cake T-Days take place two to three times a semester, at tea-time. Along with tea and cake, doctoral students (who have fairly recently gone through the process of writing an MA thesis) will provide MA students with practical and personal support that lie beyond the scope of the ‘Research Methodologies’ class. Without having set topics, discussions can tackle any part of the mémoire process (or even other aspects of the MA and beyond): whether students have specific questions to ask, haven’t started writing but want to start thinking about their mémoire, or feel lonely in the library and want to see what others in their situation are going through and working on, they are welcome to share a productive chat with other MA students and doctoral students.


In the Autumn 2020 term, Cake T-Days will take place on Zoom on the following dates: 


* Thursday 1 October, from 4 to 6 pm

* Thursday 29 October, from 4 to 6 pm

* Tuesday 1 December, from 4 to 6 pm


The links to the Zoom meetings will be sent by email.
