Getting Started with Self-Study

The purpose of the Getting Started with Self-Study Symposium was to provide an accessible entry point to people who are new to self-study or who are interested in learning more about self-study. The symposium was live-streamed on April 27, 2015 from Brock University and was co-chaired by Tim Fletcher and Déirdre Ní Chróinín. Julian Kitchen, Tom Russell, and Clare Kosnik were keynote speakers. Special thanks to Jon Winterbottom for coordinating the live streaming and recording of the symposium, and to Stephanie Beni for all of the video editing. Funding was provided by Brock University, Mary Immaculate College, and the Irish Research Council.
