Delegates are assumed to attend in an individual capacity, rather than as representatives of their universities or other institutions.

Limited funds are available to support conference travel for presenters from outside the UK who cannot or would prefer not to rely on funding from their own institution. Applications to this fund are due by 30 September. Update: moved forward to 15th September.

Please send your name, affiliation (if applicable), paper title, and a breakdown of costs requested, to the network coordinator, Hannah Boast, at imagining-jerusalem[at]york.ac.uk.
