- Yes, it’s free! But this also means that the usual conference add-ons will not be available except for what we will provide (see #3). You DO need to register so that we will have you on the namelist — the lecture hall can seat about 70-80 people so please register to avoid disappointment! (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd6-2XEDs40tWWdW8OxROeXkKVxKwjZsb-oLbbjk8PlW6m9zQ/viewform?usp=sf_link)
- When using Grabcar, enter “PPBL” or “Pusat Pengajian Bahasa” to get here, especially if you’re coming from the train station.
- We will be providing free mineral water for everyone attending the conference but also, an optional add-on of free flow of coffee/tea + 1 afternoon treat (cake etc) at RM5 — so it’s even more important for you to register so that we have a proper headcount! There are also vending machines here.
- We look forward to seeing you. You don’t need to be attached to academic institutions to attend! Fairytales and folktales are for everyone!
- While I respect and embrace language diversity — this conference is housed under our Literatures (in English) team so the conference is very much under the umbrella of folklore/fairytale studies in English. So, that will be our language medium for the conference. Just a note!
- Accessibility notes: PPBL has accessibility ramps leading downwards towards the lecture hall but the hall itself has steps as with most lecture halls. If you need additional assistance (are using a wheelchair etc) please let me know as I want to make the venue as accessible as possible for everyone and will get someone to assist.
- The prayer rooms are on the second floor of the main building for your solat needs.
- Here is the final conference programme, please save on your smartphones as we’re reducing paper-wastage: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1FL-bDsuJnFC71AIp6vqeY1AHrclZZ7ZE/view?usp=sharing
