A très bientôt,

We would like to thank everyone again who submitted an abstract for our conference – there were a very large volume of them! We were impressed with the high quality and variety of submissions we received. We have now contacted everyone who applied. If you have not heard from us, do let us know. Our programme is shaping up nicely and our diverse range of panels pays testament to the wide variety of research that is being undertaken in the field of French and Francophone studies. We will be in contact again with our delegates in September once we have finalised the programme and registration details. Thanks to the generous donations of the Institute of Modern Languages Research, The Society for French Studies, The University of Birmingham and the University of Leeds, the conference fees will be minimal. In the meantime, if you have any questions about accommodation in Birmingham or any other matters relating to your attendance please let us know at email@example.com. Don’t forget to follow us on twitter @imaginingbody
We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Birmingham on the 19th-20th January 2018!
We just received the very exciting news today that the Society for French Studies will be contributing to ‘Imagining the Body in France and the Francophone World’. We would like to thank them for their support. Many thanks again, of course, to the IMLR who will also be generously supporting the conference.
We have been enjoying reading the abstracts we have received so far – what a variety of fascinating topics!
Every one else, don’t worry! You have until the 1st June to submit your abstract to us. Phew!
We look forward to hearing from you! Get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or twitter @imaginingbody
