Our 2009 meeting took place from Friday 25 – Sunday 27 September 2009 at St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford. Under the rubric of Identifying the Person: Past, Present, and Future, a closed Network workshop at the European Studies Centre was followed by a public conference at the College, which showcased the research of our multidisciplinary international team and several other invited participants. The event attracted some media interest, while a detailed conference report is currently in development. In the meantime, for full programmes and downloadable abstracts, see the workshop and conference webpages.
