In June 2018 I will return to the university where I got my first academic job, De Montfort in Leicester, to deliver a keynote at the 7th annual postgraduate conference. The theme -- to mark the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein -- is "New Perspectives on Horror, Science Fiction and the Monstrous Onscreen". I can't wait for this one! I'm especially excited as I get to share keynoting duties with a good friend of mine, Dr Laura Mee (University of Hertfordshire).
I need to confirm the topic of my talk soon. Watch this space...
