English UK North hosts first face-to-face Academic Conference since 2019
Nearly 40 participants gathered at LILA* in Liverpool on Saturday 21 May for English UK North's first face-to-face Academic Conference since 2019. The event was supported by Trinity College London and ten other publishers and exhibitors also participated. Speakers included Chia Suan Chong, Mark Hancock, Tom Fassnidge, Emily Bryson, Steve Tulk, Anne-Margaret Smith, Dr Nathaniel Owen and Nick Kiley. Due to a late Covid diagnosis, Thom Jones stepped up to deliver our plenary with only 24 hours' notice! Many thanks to all who helped to make the day such a success.
Andrew Hjort, English UK North coordinator commented "It is wonderful to see people again and to have the opportunity to see some great new materials in the exhibition. Academic Conferences have been a feature of English UK North's mission for almost 20 years and, despite being the largest region in England, the chance to meet, to talk, to network and simply to enjoy the company of colleagues continues to draw people to the event".
