Focus on our sponsors: Brunel University

This conference series was inaugurated in 2015, thanks to the generous support of the Department of Arts and Humanities at Brunel University, London, UK. We are extremely grateful for their continued support of this conference series, its associated network, and its graduate-support activities. Our founding lead organiser, Dr Elizabeth Evenden-Kenyon, is a Senior Lecturer in the English department there, and was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie International Outgoing Fellow across Brunel and Harvard universities at the time of this inauguration.
