Our English Events newsletter for August 2013 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. The newsletter will be updated over the coming month as more events are added to external websites. Please follow our Twitter feed or Facebook page for the latest news.
Highlights at Durham University this month include International Pynchon Week 2013, and the start of the Late Summer Lecture Series, which covers topics from 1960s counter-culture in Newcastle to vampires and mediaeval monkeys.
Elsewhere, PhD students at Northumbria University are running the Northumbria Summer Speaker Series, while a one-day conference at Newcastle University explores Masculinities, Citizenship and the Nation: 1750 – 1945.
The official launch of the Durham Book Festival programme is on 7th August, with a limited number of tickets available to members of the public.
