IMG_6487It’s been almost a week since the 2016 British Association for Victorian Studies annual conference, ‘Consuming (the) Victorians’, officially closed at Cardiff University.

Whether you were able to join us in person or only online, now you can re-live the experience from the comfort of your own home. We have compiled some of our favourite memories into a Storify thread for each day of the conference, so you can re-live them along with us. BAVS Postgraduates representative Emma Butcher has also put one together for the PGR/ECR workshops on 31 August:

BAVS 2016 – PGR/ECR Workshops

BAVS 2016 – Day One (31 August, 2016)

BAVS 2016 – Day Two (1 September, 2016)

BAVS 2016 – Day Three (2 September, 2016)

BAVS 2016 – Aftermath

We couldn’t have achieved all this without our team of bursary tweeters, who volunteered their skills in exchange for a small subsidy (graciously provided by BAVS and Cardiff University). They produced around a third of the live tweets during the conference. One even put together a drawing of her experiences:

We hope you all had a lovely time at BAVS 2016: ‘Consuming (the) Victorians’, and wish you all a wonderful year to come. See you again at BAVS 2017: ‘Victorians Unbound’!
