Interesting conference location in 2014. the Island Dynamics academic network presents Folk Belief and Traditions of the Supernatural: Experience, Place, Ritual, and Narrative, set for late March 2014 in… “remote and windswept cottages on the island of Unst” in the Shetland Islands, in the bleak far north of Britain. It’s followed by the probably-slightly-more-comfy The Supernatural in Literature and Film conference from 29th—31st March 2014, in Lerwick, the capital of the Shetland Islands. Yes, they have broadband — a new £8m undersea fibre-optic cable linked them to the mainland in late 2012.
