Just a quick post to say that registration for Women at Sea is open! As a reminder, this is a fantastic (we hope and expect!) one day event in Swansea on 1 July – right on the waterfront, appropriately enough. Although it is a symposium mostly about medieval women, it transgresses the boundaries of space, time and discipline. Very importantly, we are joined by refugee women who will speak for their own experiences at sea in literal and figurative ways.
The registration has come out a little later than we hoped, but that is because a lot of time has been spent securing as much funding as possible to (a) cover the travel of postgrad and unwaged speakers, and (b) to ensure the registration fee for everyone is as low as it could be. At one point we hoped to be free to students; we were not able to secure enough funding to do that, but we hope an £18 fee for a day of talks, coffee and lunch seems like a good deal. Access matters.
