DSN Identities and Diversity Cluster Workshop – 13 September 2016
The DSN’s Identities and Diversity research cluster is holding its first annual work-in-progress workshop at the University of Leicester on 13 September 2016. The event is designed for speakers to get feedback on ideas and work under development, within a friendly and relaxed intellectual environment, and many of our papers will be discussing research in the very early stages. Please see the programme and list of abstracts for more information. DSN members are welcome to join us to add their expertise to the discussion, although please note that places are limited in order to preserve the “workshop” atmosphere.
The registration fee is £15; this includes lunch and all refreshments throughout the day. Please register here by Monday 5 September at the latest, remembering that the longer you leave it, the greater the chance there will be no spaces left:http://shop.le.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=1&deptid=7&catid=745&prodid=4908&searchresults=1.
Dinner is sadly not included in the registration fee, but we will be going to a nearby pub, the Marquis Wellington (10-15 minute walk from campus), for informal drinks and dinner after the workshop. The pub is a 5-10 minute walk to the train station, so handily located for an easy departure if you’re travelling via public transport.
For details of how to get to the University, the following webpages and maps should be useful: https://le.ac.uk/student-life/city/getting-here andhttp://www.le.ac.uk/maps/
If you’re travelling by car, you’ll need a permit to park on campus. To get a permit, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your car make and registration details by Monday 5 September and I will try to arrange this for you. If you need to stay overnight, e-mail me for a list of local hotels.
If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I hope to see some of you there for what should be an exciting and productive day in September!
