Convenors and colloquium themes:

The conference will be held in the university’s well-equipped conference suite. The nearby city of Lancaster has a distinguished historic castle and boasts several jewels of Georgian architecture. It is within 30 minutes of the Lake District, beloved of walkers, fell runners, rock climbers, painters, poets and writers. The campus is also close to a spectacular coastline stretching from Glasson Dock, a couple of miles away, through Morecambe Bay to the coast of the Southern Lakes, and also lies within easy reach of the Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales.
