Campus Visit

Today is a very exciting day! Vanessa is visiting London (from Canada) and we are spending the day at Royal Holloway (the conference venue). We will be meeting the conference team to finalise meeting rooms, accommodation and food and we will be having a tour of the Picture Gallery with the collection's curator in order to plan the conference's audio description strand. We will also be making important decisions about the content of the conference and will be in touch with proposers very soon.
