Getting to Birkbeck

Official directions for getting to the main Birkbeck building in Bloomsbury where the meeting will be held may be found here. The nearest tube stations are Russel Square, Warren Street, Euston, Euston Square and Goodge Street (those arriving at King's Cross are probably better off walking than taking the tube). On the off chance it helps Transport for London and National Rail Enquiries have very informative websites.

Specific room(s) will be announced nearer the time. The first talk will begin at 1 PM and it is likely that a buffet lunch will be provided before hand.

How to find me virtually

Typing b.fairbairn and then typing one of those fancy "at signs" before proceeding to type in an appropriate place (I recommend some form of software that is designed to send emails) should get my attention.
