Journal - Imoinda: Criticism and Response/Trans-global Conversations

On Tuesday 26 October we held a small reception to launch the final products of our one year AHRC/Beyond Text project. Opening remarks were given by the Warden of Goldsmiths, Pat Loughrey, to whom we are extremely thankful.

The event was extremely well attended and a fantastic evening was had by all. The journal titled Imoinda: Criticism and Response and the DVD titled Imoinda: Trans-global Conversations will be distributed to libraries and universities world wide.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Joan Anim-Addo, the author of the original text around which this work was based and to the academics in Italy, Greece and New York who made this project possible.

SLI Workshop - Lock Keepers Cottage

Yesterday myself and Natasha attended the SLI workshop run by the Beyond Text team for the 2010-11 Award Holders. It turned out to be a great event and we were able to talk about the ups and downs of our project.

Today, Fabio delivered the final DVD and it is fantastic. Now I have to arrange to have them pressed. Hopefully we will have the journal and the DVD ready for the end of July and then we will have to complete the end of project report!!

The last few months .....

Over the past few months the project team have been busy selecting articles for our forthcoming postgraduate journal end editing our DVD.

Our panel presentation at the Afromodernisms Conference in Liverpool in April 2010 was a big success.

Our current project is drawing to a close but we are hoping to be able to take Imoinda worldwide, starting with a conference that we hope to attend in Guyana, so watch this space.

Further details on the journal and the DVD will be posted shortly.
