We hope everyone of you had a save journey home and that you are starting to enjoy a weekend full of thoughts inspired by the Assembling Identities conference. We would like to thank again everybody who came along as speaker and delegate to make this conference such a lively, thought-provoking and fun event. After we had a little breather we aim to upload podcasts featuring our keynote speakers’ talks so that you can listen to them again. We also plan to decorate the website with some photographs taken of the conference. So, we still have something to look forward to. Finally, we hope to see many of you again at the College of Arts Conference 2014.
