The conference will have a number of parallel panels where participants can present their paper/presentation slides, but will also include several invited keynote speakers (tba), a workshop session, potentially a poster session, and ample opportunity to mingle. This year, a number of places will be made available to early career scholars from across Europe and the globe in order to be able to engage with the network, to support high-quality research of promising scholars, and to facilitate interdisciplinary exchange and knowledge transfer.
