Keynote speaker and mentor Dr Mairi McFadyenThis year's keynote speaker and mentor is Dr Mairi McFadyen, who describes herself as ‘an independent creative freelancer, who engages with themes connecting culture, heritage, creative expression, land, ecology, poetics, politics, activism and hopeful futures’.

FEECA was founded in 2014 to answer the need for an academic forum for postgraduate research students and early-career researchers and to strengthen relations between relevant scholars and institutions in the UK and elsewhere. The plenary format allows everyone to present their research to the whole group, and a maximum of 30 participants creates a sense of community among participants, opportunities for networking, and space for conversations.

Past FEECA conferences have attracted scholars from around the world; both local and international early-career researchers and practitioners are encouraged to apply.
