As discussed as the annual meeting in June at the bDigra Conference we were asked to explore a method of communication and community that would allow information about events to be shared easily – the community voted and here is the discord channel you overwhelmingly voted for. We would continue to maintain the website (http://bdigra.org.uk/) and promote the e-mail list (http://mail.digra.org/mailman/listinfo/uk).
Hopefully this will work as a way to continue the conversations, share events and scholarly things that started at the 2018 conference and work to build to community. The link is here – https://discord.gg/bQuGQcF

We also have a Facebook Page – https://www.facebook.com/britishdigra/
Both of these are great ways of letting us know about events and opportunities you want shared, that would be of interest to British Digra members.
