REFRAMING DISASTER will begin at 9am on Friday 28th November, and we advise that those coming from far afield arrive the day before. We expect to finish on Saturday 29th November by 6pm. We realise many people will want to head home after the conference, but we can make arrangements for those who want to have informal dinner/drinks together (on a pay-for-yourself basis). Please register interest in these options at the doodle poll here. We will check for numbers and choose somewhere between campus and Leeds Rail Station.
