The draft programme for the 14th International Gothic Association’s conference, Gothic Hybridities, may be downloaded here: IGA 2018 Conference Draft Programme.
For the sake of travel and accommodation bookings, we can confirm that presenting days are now fixed. Although times and panels may have to be reshuffled slightly to accommodate withdrawals, we will make sure this remains within the days given to delegates. Those intending to book on-campus accommodation for the conference, which is only available for full-conference stays, please note that these rooms will need to be booked by mid-May.
Each panel is scheduled for 90 minutes, to allow for 3×20-minute presentations, followed by questions. Please note that delegates currently scheduled in a 4-person panel (that was not pre-arranged), will be reshuffled to make 3-person panels in advance of the event. This means delegates should still prepare a 20-minute presentation. Rooms will all be furnished with audio-visual equipment. Please get in touch with us at IGAManchester2018@mmu.ac.uk if you would like to chair a panel that does not yet have one allocated.
We have an exciting programme of events planned to accompany the conference. Delegates will be contacted when these go live, and they will then have 2 weeks’ exclusive access to booking before tickets are released to the general public.
