"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Homeward Bound for Spring REVISED EDITION 
30th-Jan-2010 01:17 am
I plan to return home for a couple of weeks in the latter half of March. It's not really going to be a vacation, though, because I will be making at least a couple of academic "appearances":

March 18-21: Annual Meeting of the Eastern Sociological Society (Boston, MA)
March 22-23: Mount Holyoke College (South Hadley, MA)

And then it's back to the UK for:

April 7-9: Annual Meeting of the British Sociological Association (Glasgow, Scotland)
April 12-14: The Graphic Novel and Comics Conference (Manchester, UK)

I'm going to Manchester as well! WE CAN MEET UP :D

Awesome! Are you presenting? ^_^

I'm not sure yet. I submitted an abstract, but I haven't heard back from them as of yet. I'm not sure if this means I should be discouraged or not.

Hmm. >_< Well, it's possible that they are rolling acceptances. The email that I got was very personalized.

Do you have any idea where you're going to stay overnight? I'm so clueless about that, it's sad...

When did you hear from them? I've had suspicions that my business mail has been not receiving .ac.uk email addresses for some time now, and this just clinches it. I've gotten in touch with them via my uni mail address after you commented, and I'll hope for the best...

I'm not sure yet...My boyfriend lives in Leyland, half an hour away, so I might stay with his family. I'd call the university and see what they recommend...that's what I did when I spoke in Glasgow last spring.

I heard from them last night (Friday, in the evening). Best of luck getting in contact with them!

I called this morning, and it turns out they were discussing my paper today! I will in fact be speaking there! :)
Thank you for making this post and alerting me to the problem with my email, otherwise, I wouldn't have thought to give them an alternate address!

AWESOME!! Looking forward to seeing you there. ^__^
