CeMoRe Annual Research Day 2011
Date: 25 May 2011 Time: 9.30am to 5.00pm
Venue: Bowland North Seminar Room 20
As regulars will know this is intended to be a forum where Lancaster colleagues present short papers on their 'mobilities' research. We are happy to have contributions on new ideas, research in progress and finished research projects. The idea is to explore the diversity of mobilities research at Lancaster, to generate discussion and facilitate new research links.
Could you please inform Pennie Drinkall if you wish to attend the day p.drinkall 'at' lancaster.ac.uk by 19 May.
