Skepsi’s Eleventh Year

At the start of a new academic year, we’ve said ‘Good bye’ to last year’s Assistants, David Bremner, Dominique Carlini Versini, and Joyce Leung, but we give a warm welcome to our new Assistants Silvia Esposito, Muradiye Kiyak, Zsofia Millich and Mihaela Varsari.
The new issue of Skespi, our on-line journal, will be published very soon, so watch out for further announcements. We’re also well advanced with the next issue, which we aim to publish next Spring.
We’re already beginning to plan for our next annual conference next May, which will be dedicated to the themes of ‘Wandering’ and ‘Home’. More details will be included in the Call for Papers which will be circulated later this term.
Finally, it’s never too late to join the Skepsi team, so, if you’d like to be involved with either the organisation of the conference, the production of the journal, or managing this Blog, please contact us at skepsi@kent.ac.uk
