On 4 FebrIMG_0059uary 2016, LJMU English’s Kate Walchester travelled to Østfold University College in Halden, Norway to give a Keynote Lecture to open the Second ENTICE International Interdisciplinary Conference. The (irresistible) acronym ENTICE stands for ‘East-North Travel and Intercultural Communication in Europe’, a project funded by EEA and Norway Grants, awarded to encourage pan-European collaborations. 

Kate’s lecture, which discussed the travel writing of Mary Wollstonecraft, Lady Di Beauclerk and Mrs. Aubrey le Blond was titled ‘Employment, Mobility and Intercultural Communication in British Travelogues from the long Nineteenth Century’ and comes from her research for a monograph, Travelling Servants; Mobility and Employment in British Travel Writing 1750- 1850. Kate is shown in the photo with organisers Dr. Eva Lambertson and Dr. Jutta Eschenbach from the English Department at Østfold University College.
