Registration has now opened for the Company of Wolves conference. Taking place at the University of Hertfordshire from the 3rd-5th September, the conference features plenary presentations from Sam George, Neil Jordan, Catherine Spooner, Stacey Abbott, Marcus Sedgwick, Bill Hughes, Garry Martin and Christopher Frayling. I’m presenting some new research on the figure of the hybrid in neo-gothic and steampunk narratives.
More information on the conference programme can be found here, and you can register to attend here. Places on the ‘Walking with Wolves’ excursion are limited, so make sure you register quickly if you want to attend that one.
I’m going to live tweet the panels that I attend (except for the one I’m on, most likely) and will be using the official conference hashtag #CoW. You can find me on twitter here and some more info about joining on the conversation on twitter from Kaja’s blog about tweeting the conference.
