I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience with BrANCH. The hosts, especially fellow Bulldog David Gleeson, were gracious. I liked conversing with graduate students and senior scholars from the U.K. about history, politics, and culture. The panels were excellent. I can’t make the conference every year, but I hope to have the opportunity to present there again.
Newcastle was beautiful, as I found out during a sight-seeing jaunt the last day.
