I went to a conference this last week and enjoyed it immensely. My talk was at 8 am on Friday and there was a full room. I’d say at least 60 people.
We had four people on the panel and everyone showed up. The papers were very disparate, though they did sort of orbit around literature (loosely).
We had good questions for everyone except the speaker who was from China and had a very strong accent. I actually think one of the questions could have gone to her, but no one asked because of the language barriers.
My panel got the most questions, which I enjoyed, of course. In fact, someone came and asked about my readings. I sent them off with my paper. I hope they enjoy it.
I’d really be interested in writing an article on that paper, but it would require more reading than I have time to do write now. Perhaps in June? (Yeah, right.)
