The conference will be held in Bath, United Kingdom June 5 – June 11 2023, with the initial days set aside for a writing camp and the Doctoral Consortium. More details on these will follow separately.
The conference welcome reception takes place Thursday June 8 2023, with the conference proper Friday June 9 – Sunday June 11 2023.
In order to effectively put the conference programme together we therefore ask that all authors make themselves available to present their work all day Friday June 9, the morning of Saturday June 10 and the morning of Sunday June 11.
The conference itself will take in the new School of Management building at the University of Bath campus. There will be an optional excursion in the afternoon on Saturday June 10 before the Second Annual John Mahon Celebratory Banquet on Saturday night. We have negotiated discounted rates at the Hilton Hotel, which is a central hotel that has recently gone through a complete refurbishment. Details of rates and when to book will be made available shortly, along with registration and conference fees.
