LLC Blethers


LLC Blethers: An Evening of Academic Storytelling is a social-academic event held in Edinburgh at the beginning of each calendar year. It features PechaKucha presentations about postgraduate research and experiences and is open to all Literatures, Languages, and Culture (LLC) postgraduate students and staff. LLC Blethers is kindly supported by the University of Edinburgh’s LLC Innovative Learning Week and the Graduate School Student-Led Initiative Fund.


Blethers brings academics into an informal setting to showcase the things that excite them most, and to give students and staff, both new and old, a chance to socialise and collaborate in new and innovative ways. You can find out more about LLC Blethers and the work they showcase here.

Here at Inciting Sparks we support the LLC Blethers initiative by providing a platform for participants to record their presentations and help share the work they put into the project in a more concrete form. You can find videos of the presentations given each year by searching for LLC Blethers in the search bar at the top of the page or by clicking here.
