Current topics and streams


At our annual conference we have regular streams (as well as one off ‘current topics’ which run for that single conference).  To enable the streams to have a life beyond the annual conference we have introduced this dedicated section of the website’

If you are a convenor and would like further details of your stream to be included in the section, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. SLSA stream convenors are also eligible to apply for stream convenor funding.
