At the beginning of the summer, I was tasked with creating a poster for the Swiss Association of Medieval and Early Modern English Studies (SAMEMES). It was this newly formed association whose inaugural opening Origins conference/seminar I presented at a few months ago.
Having prepared something for the upcoming first main conference, Pretexts, Intertextualities, and the Construction of Textual Identity, a generic version needed to be done again. Here’s what I came up with.
The aforementioned conference will feature several presentations from Geneva: Petya Ivanova, Ioana Balgradean, Louise Wilson and Sarah Van der Laan, plus plenary lectures from Stephen Orgel and Bristol’s Ad Putter.
Despite the obvious pleasures, I am once again the solitary student male from Geneva, staying in a different building with different arrangements from everyone else. I am not attending the conference dinner and am glad it is only a one-night stay.
Finally, on the artistic front, it has been time for a refresh to my course website. ‘Improvement’, it would seem, is a simple enough, and apt enough, target.
