To everyone who presented papers last week, and to whose attended the conference as well:
We would like to thank you for making the event a great success. We were very pleased with the turnout, and even more pleased to hear that our attendees found the conference engaging and productive. Some people were taking the opportunity to indulge a passion outside their usual range of work, whereas others were enjoying the opportunity to share their research with a wider audience.
The diversity of subjects addressed was truly exciting. We found new and fascinating subjects in presentations on historical fiction, video games, musicals, detection, and poetry. Everyone seems to have found something to add to their reading list!
Below, please find the report of the Shame workshop, compiled by Kate Macdonald. This is a great recap of a very fruitful discussion, which will hopefully be useful to those who participated and just as interesting to those who did not.
We are currently working on proposals for publication, and hope to have some news to share with you on that front soon. Also, we will soon be planning next year’s conference and will post that information here as well. If you have any suggestions in the meantime, please do let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brittain, Emma, and Sam
