This is an excitingly different one day inter-disciplinary postgraduate Colloquium supported by the AHRC Beyond Text Programme. Our definition of bad behaviour has been chosen to cover the widest parameters of the transgressive: all aspects of the bad from ludic, mischievous or disruptive to the violently anti-social, sexual, tabooed and/or criminal. We are calling for papers from postgraduates which will forge new relevant research. We offer:
- Personal business cards for speed networking event and a Colloquium Handbook of Bad Behaviour or 'Manuel des Pecchiez'
- Practical archival training session using unique documentary evidence from Canterbury archives
- Evening exhibition on Bad Behaviour at Canterbury
Cathedral Archives
- Night Tour of Canterbury Cathedral Crypt with spoken performances
- British Cartoon Archive Collaborative Exhibition launch and interactive website linking early modern and medieval transgression to modern images of bad behaviour
- Selected papers published in the on-line peer-reviewed postgraduate journal Skepsi
- some limited transport and accommodation bursaries available
