The British Association of Decadence Studies (BADS) is currently in the process of being formally established.  BADS will be a scholarly association that brings together academics and practitioners from across the UK and beyond in order to explore the field of Decadence in the broadest sense, from the perspective of various cultures and multiple disciplines, from antiquity to the present day, including written, visual, performative, and audible texts, in English and in other languages.
