I received an invitation for Open Shakespeare to come to the annual 'Food
for Thought' event in the English Faculty the other day. They offer us two
formats: either a stand or a short, 10 min presentation - which one do
people think is best for us?

One of the events that the English Faculty Library organises for members of
this Faculty & Librarians from around the institution & any other Arts and
Humanities Faculty members who are interested, is an event that we call
'Food dor Thought'. This has taken the form of a resource and service 'fair'
in June lasting for an afternoon. The event is a mix of publishers with
stands, some of whom give short resource presentations.
We are expecting publishers like OUP, CUP, Gale Cengage & Proquest but also
have others eg ebook providers such as Touch Press, the local academic
bookshop (Heffers) and this year Netskills is running a short course on the
same afternoon. It is also an opporunity for the University Library to
promote various services. The whole event hinges on supporting researchers
in the Arts in a variety of ways.
This year we will be including a plenary talk to precede the 'fair' which
will focus on the research process and will include a presentation by Gareth
Knight from CeRcH, Kings College, London.
We were wondering if you would be available and would like to join us. You
would be welcome to do a short presentation about Open Shakespeare in
seminar style or just have a stand.
It will be on Monday June 27th in the afternoon and will be held in the
Faculty Library and in a seminar room in the same building. If you were
interested in coming along we would be delighted.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.
With best wishes,
