17th July 2015 – IAMCR Conference

I’ve had a truly excellent week in Montreal at UQAM for the #IAMCR2015 Conference! What a wonderful city! My presentation (Paternalism in Elite Legitimacy Claims for Propaganda Since 9/11) on Monday kicked things off for a wonderful week – pics from that to follow and hopefully an article…

Here’s some of the other highlights too… first the fantastic, eye-opening plenaries from David Lyon (Queens University, Kingston Ontario) and Carly Nyst (Privacy International) on Surveillance:

Limos and champagne and a starlit cruise down the St Lawrence River with dancing and 5 course meal…

A dancing night with Cees Hamelink’s Jazz Band, The Burgundian Combo and a wonderful DJ. Not to mention the beauty of the city of Montreal as the backdrop – wonderful people and great culture. I’ve been sitting in coffee shops and bars working on a blog post I hope to find a home for soon! Watch this space!

Tomorrow I am off, but not back to Sheffield just yet – I’m heading to DC to George Washington University for a few weeks.
