Return from Geneva

July 5, 2010

 

 

Cardiff University’s Elizabeth Ford, Johann Gregory and Étienne Poulard have just returned from the SAMEMES medieval and early modern authorship conference in Geneva.

A very short report:

“We had a tremendous time in a warm sunny Geneva. The conference was a great success with prestigious plenary speakers and high quality panel sessions.

The Cardiff Shakespeare panel went well, with the likes of Patrick Cheney, Katherine Duncan-Jones, Lukas Erne, Lynn Meskill and others in the audience. Thankfully Andy Kesson provided his usual solid support in the chair.

The conference included an enjoyable conference dinner and trips to Le Musée de la Réforme and La Foundation Bodmer, a collection which included a wealth of books including a Shakespeare First Folio.

Geneva  supplied friendly company, tastey food, cold beer, and a crystal clear lake for swimming!  

We particularly recommend the friendliest bar in Geneva called Le Chantilly on the Rue Dancet near Uni Mail.”
