Back from International Martial Arts conference (Cardiff, July 19-21, 2016)

The second annual conference organised by Paul Bowman was splendid! Mind-blowing papers from a very interdisciplinary and international crowd. Had the opportunity to offer a Keynote, which was taped and coming soon online (I'll post the link once it's out). Meanwhile, you can have a glimpse into it as seen by Kai Morgan:

I had other scholars assisting me as improvised squires, we had fun, although I usually dislike to give academic talks in armour (people tend to mistake me with a reenactor). It was very well received though, and I think I made my points go though.

This conference is part of a network, pretty active. They launched their open access journal last year, have a read and follow our endeavours! Exciting projects on the road.
