ISTR 2020 at Queen’s University Belfast – Postponed to May 2021

The ISTR 2020 conference at Queen’s University Belfast, 29-30 May 2020, has been postponed until May 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We sincerely regret that we will not be gathering our wonderful ISTR colleagues together this year. However, in the wake of the societal and disciplinary change that is emerging in response to this crisis, we believe that our planned discussion of the interrelations of labour and value in our fields will be even more pressing when we reconvene.

Any queries can be directed to the conference email (, and updates about conference dates, accommodation and scheduling for 2021 will be posted to the ISTR website. 

We send all good wishes for your health, and for a happy reunion of our ISTR family on the other side.

Stay safe,

Aoife McGrath and Marie Kelly

Co-Presidents​ of ISTR
