DAWF News: 31st January

Hi all,

It’s been quite a month for us DAWF-ers! You might have noticed that our website has had a bit of facelift for 2018…

Our call for papers closes THIS FRIDAY(!) – so please make sure that you don’t miss out on the chance to present alongside some fantastic speakers. For more information about either day, please have a look at the following links:

Our next news post will be on Friday 9th February. If you have any links to interesting articles (news or journal), reports, policy documents, websites, or any other types of media on this topic, send it to us at dawf2018@gmail.com, and we’ll try include as many on the blog as we possibly can!
