In the Autumn of 2014, Santander Universities funded School of History, Art History and Phoilosophy doctoral researcher Laura Cofield and Dr Lucy Robinson’s journey to New York University and the Fales Archive.

Dr Lucy RobinsonThe visit, the relationship that Laura and Lucy developed, and their subsequent research was presented in various forms in Berlin, Atlanta, and at a number of UK conferences.

Dr Lucy Robinson also used the experience as the basis of her key note at the KISMIF (Keep It Simple Make it Fast) conference in Porto.

This collaborative endeavor has now made it into press with the publication of, The opposite of the band’: fangrrrling, feminism and sexual dissidence in the Journal Textual Practice.
