    Dear Edith, thanks for this academic overview. I am not active in academia but am glad serious news as this is shown by UWE. Enjoy Rome UWE AGM together, I am not joining in places I know already. I like combining members and new venues. I’ll usually join when in England/Scotland, but am also saving for Geneva 100yrs GWI and I expect UWEmeeting will be held there in 2019. Good luck with finding a successor if that is on the agenda, I have lost count a bit, but stay interested of course. You are welcome to van Ostadestraat 230G after a telcall! Best wishes from Audrey
