A note about respect:

Hearing the Voice is strongly committed to diversity, accessibility and inclusion. Underpinning that commitment is a firm belief in the value of freely exploring competing ideas and concepts – with a fundamental respect for the rights, dignity and value of all persons.

We ask you to join us in ensuring that PAD2018 creates a dynamic, friendly, intellectually enriching and harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, physical appearance, ethnicity, religion or other group identity. All communication should be appropriate for an interdisciplinary academic audience including people of many different backgrounds. Please be kind to others.

If you do experience or observe harassment, please contact our Equality and Diversity Lead, Mary Robson, in person at the event or via email or telephone (079318938726). Mary will respond immediately to determine the appropriate course of action and may consult with and engage other University staff as appropriate.

Thank you for helping make this a welcoming, friendly event for all.

Social media:

We warmly invite you to join the conversation about PAD 2018 on social media, using the hashtag #personification2018. If you are speaking at the conference and would prefer the audience not to share your research findings or images of your presentation slides, please let the Chair of your session know in advance so that they can inform the other conference delegates.
