We are delighted to announce that we will be holding a short online colloquium on Friday 23 October 2020 (see timetable below). We will also hold our (famously short) Annual General Meeting at this time and would be very grateful for your attendance at this too.
The colloquium will take place via Zoom and we will send a link to registered participants closer to the time. All are welcome to attend and attendance is free of charge.
Please register by contacting Mariane Bignotto (M.Bignotto1
westminster.ac.uk) by Friday 09 October.
We hope that we will be in a position to organise a live day-long event in London in Spring 2021, but this will naturally depend on the health guidelines.
