You will not be surprised that we are canceling this year’s Yale-Edinburgh conference. Whilst some countries are emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, others are only entering it. Travel restrictions are likely to be in place for sometime. We are very sorry that we won’t be welcoming participants to Edinburgh this year. We had a large number of fascinating abstracts.
Those who have booked for the conference and accommodation will have their money reimbursed. This may take a week or two to reach your bank accounts, so please bear with the adminstrator, Mrs Jean Reynolds, as she deals with this. Please be in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any practical difficulties.
At this stage we would already like to invite you to Yale-Edinburgh 2021! We very much hope that it will be possible to hold the conference at the end of June next year. We propose to have the same theme ‘Oral, Print and Digital Cultures‘ and we will hold it in Edinburgh. It remains particularly topical as there has been an increased move to digital forms of Christian worship during the spread of COVID-19. This move remains uneven and dynamic. We will not keep the 2020 abstracts. You may like to submit the same one next year or write a new one.
We will write again towards the end of the year with dates and more information.
In the meantime, we send our prayers for your good health.
Alexander Chow and Emma Wild-Wood
