Festschrift to honour Jennifer Creek

Jennifer_creek_croppedOn the 1st September 2009 RCOMH and The Retreat hosted a festschrift for Jennifer Creek to mark her retirement. A festschrift is a book honouring a respected academic. The papers from the day, as well as other reflections on Jennifer's contribution and messages of goodwill, will form the book that will be presented to Jennifer later. We are also hoping to publish a book to mark the festschrift but the event, itself, was an opportunity to celebrate Jennifer and her many achievements...

A variety of presentations were given by the following people, where these were using Powerpoint, the files have been linked.
