Thank you all for attending BritGrad 2016! What an amazing three days full of stimulating conversations, inspiring perspectives, and new connections (and, we hope, friendships). We heard papers on nicknames, philosophy, translation, adaptation, Star Wars, rhetoric and linguistics, Dekker, Jonson, gesture, queer theory, theatre practice, stage design, witches, and a great deal more. The caliber of both the papers presented and the questions asked in each panel were really excellent – we hope you enjoyed them as much as we did!
In case you weren’t able to join us, we’ve made a Storify story with a selection of the live-tweets from the conference. If that’s not enough for you (it wasn’t nearly enough for us) and you want a taste of the whole event, head over to our Twitter page, where you’ll be able to see more on student panels and plenary lectures. You can also find photo albums of each day of the conference (plus the party!) on our Facebook page.
Before you get too involved with tweets and photos, here’s a small sampling of #britgrad2016 by the numbers:
Innumerable tweets posted using the conference hashtag
33 Photos tweeted using the conference hashtag
24 Student panels
18 Photos taken by a BritGrad committee member of attendees enjoying our roving selfie booth
12 Carafes each of coffee and tea (which we think shows admirable restraint)
10 Boxes of macaroons for dessert on Day 1
8 Plenary speakers
4 Travel bursaries awarded by the Lizz Ketterer Trust
2 Video presentations
And your 10 committee members are pleased to announce that they’re almost 100% recovered.
Again, thanks for helping to make the Eighteenth BritGrad conference a smashing success – here’s to #britgrad2017!
