ECHIC 2020 Conference Postponed

Dear ECHIC members,    

It is with great regret that we announce that the 2020 ECHIC conference has been postponed until April 2021. The decision has been taken along with the Conference Organisers and the Executive Committee of ECHIC in light of the spread of Covid-19 and the drastic travel restrictions being put in place by the day.   We had a tremendous response to our call for papers and were excited about what promised to be a wonderful conference. We have decided, therefore, to reschedule the conference as a whole in Lund, April 22-23, 2021. The keynote speakers have confirmed their participation.     We look forward to welcoming you in Lund next year.

We are pleased to welcome two new members that have recently joined ECHIC.

It coordinates and supports research dissemination to public as well as academic audiences, and provides researchers in SHaC, both students and staff, with career development opportunities. BRIHC Research Fellows play a core role in the Institute’s activities by their organisation of research projects and events around engaging themes, and their intellectually innovative contribution to the life of the School.
