I attended the conference in Turin for the first time this year, presenting a paper on Kindle Highlights and Public Notes which was well received. Network members Anne Mangen and Torsten Petterson were also presenting, and Anne will be organising the IGEL conference in Stavanger in 4 years. Part of the purpose of my visit was to publicise the work of the network, and there seemed to be a lot of interest from the delegates I spoke to. Indeed, it is likely we may have some new members from among the IGEL faithful soon. It was encouraging to see such a wide range of perspectives on reading, and it is evident that this is an organisation on the up, with many new members. It was also good to see many papers on contemporary media at the conference, including a keynote by Jerome Bourdon. I can certainly recommend this as a conference to researchers of reading and audiences. As well as the biannual conferences, IGEL also runs mini conferences, so definitely worth looking out for these on the website. Also worth considering joining the organisation, as this comes with a free subscription to the society’s journal. Below is a link to some photos from the conference.
