We apologize but because of a death in Prof. Bassnett’s family we had to swap the keynote lectures dates, so that:
Prof. BASSNETT’S lecture, originally scheduled for Friday, 20th January, 9:30am, will now take place on THURSDAY, 19TH JANUARY, 2-3PM.
Prof. LANDRY’S and Prof. ROONEY’S lecture, originally scheduled for Thursday, 2-3pm, will now take place on FRIDAY, 20 JANUARY, 10-11AM (please note the change of starting time from 9:30 to 10am). 
In addition, all Friday’s panels but 6a & 6b will be starting 30 or 15 minutes later than originally planned. Please refer to the updated programme below for details.
