Show and Tell is a new and exciting series of talks hosted by the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary University of London.
Featuring short and engaging talks from academic researchers, broadcasters, creative writers, and theatre practitioners. Show and Tell is a celebration of arts and humanities education and the creative industries for those interested in studying or working in literature, theatre, art, media, and culture more broadly.
The evening promises to be entertaining and relaxed. Speakers will each deliver a TED-style talk, and these will be followed by a chance for guests to ask questions, before the evening ends with socialising and networking over refreshments. We welcome school students, teachers, university students and applicants, and everyone else to come and hear what our speakers have to say.
