CAPTIVATING CRIMINALITY 7: MEMORY, HISTORY AND REVALUATION
To all our delegates accepted to present papers at Captivating Criminality 7, July 2-4th 2020, at Bath Spa University:
We are extremely sorry to have to write to say that we are having to cancel the conference this July, due to the COVID-19 virus. Bath Spa is now a 'virtual' university and will continue to be so until at least September 2020. This year we received a large number of extremely strong and fascinating abstracts and were looking forward to welcoming you to Bath - either for the first time or catching up with old friends. The conference series has run successfully every year since 2014 and cancelling it this year is very much a last resort. It may be possible to hold a smaller colloquium later this year. If that is the case I will contact everyone.
If you have registered then you will be refunded.
Please allow the relevant department at Bath Spa time to do this - we are all working virtually at the moment and staff are trying their best to respond to this unprecedented situation as quickly as possible.
I do have one piece of great news to share, which would have been announced in July.
This is from Kerstin-Anja Munderlein:
"Even though this year's Captivating Criminality will have to be cancelled because of COVID-19 and the emergency measures Bath Spa University has had to take, we would like to invite you to next years conference. In 2021, Captivating Criminality will go on holiday again! This time, the University of Bamberg in the south of Germany will be our host. The Call for Papers to the Bamberg conference is attached to this e-mail, but please be assured that due to this extraordinary situation abstracts from this year will receive favourable consideration. We are looking forward to seeing you in Bamberg in July 2021. Stay safe, everyone, and see you when all of this will (hopefully) have blown over."
All best wishes,
Fiona, and the organising team, Eric, Amber and Ffion.
