An anniversary conference was held in Loughborough University in March 2012 to celebrate 25 years of the Discourse and Rhetoric Group (DARG) and 10 years of the Culture and Media Analysis Research Group (CAMARG).
We thank all the Plenary speakers, the (240) presenters and the (over 370) attenders for an excellent conference, which was enjoyed by all.
Videos of the Plenary speeches can be seen on this page.
