Fairytale Salon Conference: Registration and Information

Content mirrored from the FB events page:

  1.  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)
  2. When using Grabcar, enter “PPBL” or “Pusat Pengajian Bahasa” to get here, especially if you’re coming from the train station.
  3. 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.
  4. We look forward to seeing you. You don’t need to be attached to academic institutions to attend! Fairytales and folktales are for everyone!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. The prayer rooms are on the second floor of the main building for your solat needs.
  8. 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
