Dear Friends & Colleagues,

Welcome back! We hope that your semester has got off to a swashbuckling start!

Over the summer we have been updating and transforming the EPCAF website. We invite you to take a look, and see if there is any additional information you think we should add:
And please, share EPCAFcentral with colleagues, students, librarians, and anyone else who might be interested.

We have a few exciting projects coming up in the next few months, but for the time being find below some calls for papers, new publications, and diverse announcements. Remember to send us any information you would like us to include in the next circulaire. Don’t be shy if you have a new publication you would like to share with the EPCAF group.
