Positively Deviant!

Just a quick update on my first conference last week. It was an incredibly positive experience. I don’t know what I was expecting really. If I slipped up reading my paper, mispronounced something, would people  start throwing rotten vegetables at me? If I wasn’t able to answer a question, would I have been heckled to death? Funny things go through the nerve-wracked mind. The conference itself was conducted in a fantastic way, with live tweeting, live blogging and lovely herbal teas at the breaks. Interesting papers were given by all and I would like to thank the Bookends team again for a great experience (even though I didn’t get to the after-conference party).

Instead of posting the entire piece (all 2500 words of it), check out this  link to the Bookends live blogging page from my paper “Of swiche cursed stories I sey fy”: Incest and its consequences in Middle English Exempla.

Shocking and most certainly deviant!

Here’s hoping my next conference will be as positive as this!

  1. Well done. Did I or did I not tell you that you would be brilliant? I love it when I am right. Sorry to have missed it, but more pleased that you have jumped an imaginary hurdle.

    • Brilliant is definitely an overstatment Ann but anything like that where I don’t break down crying with nerves is always a plus! Hope London was great (and productive).
