It’s been nice to see the English Scholars Beyond Borders group slowly taking off. After two successful conferences, they are going to have a Symposium in Izmir, Turkey, the site of their first inaugural conference, which I was honored to present a plenary at. The upcoming symposium is December 2015. I unfortunately can’t make it this time, but am looking forward to attending their May 2016 conference in Taiwan. Details of both conferences are here.
