Welcome back, 2019-2020

The 2019-20 academic year is about to get under way and our schedule is taking shape! We have a wide variety of exciting events and collaborations coming up this year – see the table below, and keep an eye on our webpage and social media for updates to times/venues or for new events.

For the first time, we have a Call for Participation that is live now – if you would like to run a session, you have until 31st October to send us your idea! Blog articles may be proposed at any time of the year – please see our Submission Criteria for more information.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the people who worked so hard to make last year’s events a success and to welcome our new members on board. Somak, our founder, has handed over the reins to this year’s convenor Hannah but remains involved with the group. Andrew has now completed his PhD, so we would like to wish him all the best for the future and thank him for his generous help. We wish a temporary farewell to Amal, who will hopefully rejoin us next year, and a belated thank you to Daniel for his helping in the months following the group’s launch in the summer term of 2018. In their places, we welcome on board Louise and Nick, who you will no doubt meet at our events this coming year.

We look forward to meeting you all soon at one of our events. In the meantime, do spread the word about these and keep up with our social media and blog.
