A GIFCon 2021 Reading List

Working on GIFCon2021 was an exercise in balance. Joy and frustration mingled together as we tried to take advantage of our present difficulties to create a conference that would be more accessible and welcoming to scholars based outside of the UK, while at the same time maintaining some sense of a work/life balance for our committee of (mainly) PGR volunteers. 

One of our biggest sources of joy was (re)discovering the work of our amazing creative keynotes: Xia Jia, and Amal El-Mohtar, and we wanted to share some of that joy with you all in preparation for our event. So, without further ado, we’re happy to offer a small reading list, featuring some of our favourite works of those authors, available online. Think of it as a wine tasting for your brain!

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to GIFCon 2021 on April 28th, 29th, and 30th. Register now on our Eventbrite here and feel free to peruse the programme which is available here

And now, read on!
