Solidarnosc conference log update
- Dr. Charles Turner agreed a week and a half ago to be the project’s academic sponsor, a ceremonial tutoring role which basically means he gives us technical backing in the course of the event.
- Conference room has been booked.
- A blog address, blogs.warwick.ac.uk/polonia, has been requested and we are awaiting confirmation from the blog administrator. This page will contain news updates running up to the event, background reading (such as interesting articles, bios of our speakers etc), further info (related conferences, for whoever wants to know more) and we will also post this log on it. The diary is meant to give an idea of obstacles we’re experiencing and to help us keep track of where we stand in the organisation.
- Marcin will attend the conference “Solidarnosc + 25, Solidarnosc and Britain” at King’s College in London this Saturday and he is looking at finding someone to accompany him. Maarten will be unable to attend the conference.
- We’re facing problems getting some of the speakers confirmed. This will need to happen soon if we want to get started on informing the university community and beyond about the event. Advertisement cannot start until some of the basics are secured.
End of the update.
