On February 8th, we held our first Symposium at the University of Huddersfield, Our goal was to open up to the Yorkshire Network for Canadian Studies to a wider group of people, to meet each other in person, share our research interests and generate some ideas of what we might do next.
It was a fantastic day, attended by folk form Leeds, York, Sheffield and Huddersfield, including seasoned lecturers, creative writers and Masters and Phd students. We spent the day sharing personal research, discussing areas of interest in groups and having fun trying to join the dots. We finished the day generating ideas of what to do next, including building a future event around the idea of’Re-Imagining Canada.
Watch this blog for personal reviews from the day (we have a great one coming soon from the wonderful Sarah Falcus).
