At the beginning of June, CCSE had the perhaps slightly unexpected pleasure of one again hosting our annual conference virtually.

The interface now provides easy access to our commissioned research and consultation reports, academic articles and book chapters. The short films that have been made to document some of the work we’ve undertaken and events we’ve hosted over the course of Centre activities are also accessible here. (more…)
