Reception Workshop, University of Bristol

This event took place last week at Bristol, and was very enjoyable. (The cake was good too!) As I've said before, Ika Willis is the Faculty of Arts' Lecturer in Reception and she will be running a new MA in Reception and Critical Theory here in 2007-08. She organised the day as a kind of intro to what other people are doing here in terms of reception. As you can see below, a good number of departments were represented. Hopefully, when our MA in Biblical Reception is up and running, students can tap into a number of complementary courses (and this kind of event) elsewhere in the Faculty.
