Horizons 2016 was the first conference conducted at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń by Doctoral Students Association. The conference, which took place on October 20, 2016, gave a great opportunity for young scholars and researchers to share and discuss their research interests pertaining to an eponymous theme – horizons – exploring an unknown areas in research on the English language, literature and culture.
During the conference, we had the honour to listen to a plenary lecture entitled „Allies or Enemies? The Representation of "Black" Soldiers in Recent First World War Fiction in English and French” delivered by Professor Anna Branach-Kallas who discussed the position of black soldiers during the First World War and their representation in fiction.
We would like to thank all participants for their engagement and a wonderful atmosphere. It was a great pleasure to attend your presentations!
