Our English Events newsletter for December 2012 is now available. The newsletter lists a wide variety of literature-related events taking place at Durham University and across the wider North East region.
Highlights at Durham University this month include an Inventions of the Text seminar with Dr James Smith, who is uncovering the dossiers compiled by the government to monitor authors and cultural organisations during the Cold War. The Institute of Advanced Study continues to advance research into the theme of Time, with an interdisciplinary research conversation.
Elsewhere, Professor John Batchelor launches his new biography of Tennyson with a Newcastle University Insights lecture, and the North East Postgraduate Research Group for the Long Nineteenth Century celebrate Christmas in the Victorian style, with readings from Edward Lloyd.
