IDEA conference, Malatya, Turkey 15-17 April 15

Just returned from the IDEA “Studies in English” conference held at Inönü university in the east-Turkey city of Malatya.
I talked about Peter Weir’s 1981 film Gallipoli.
Conferences are wonderful for the stimulation and joy of conversations and hearing papers, and additional highlights of this one were dancing to live music at the dinner, poetry reading at the Caravanserai, and the trip to snow-capped Mount Nemrut
