Our English Events newsletter for May 2014 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.
In addition to the usual seminars and discussion groups, particular highlights at Durham University this month include two conferences and workshops relating to the nineteenth century: Connecting Disciplines in the Nineteenth-Century and Female Voice/s in the Long Nineteenth Century. Moving into the twenty-first century, there is a one-day symposium on the arts in a time of crisis. Lastly, looking back to the medieval period, Professor Mary Carruthers lectures on Stylistic Effects and Bodily Health in Medieval Aesthetics.
Further afield, the Northern Modernism Seminar hosts a one-day conference on Modernism and Trust, whilst Hexham Book Festival continues until 8th May, featuring numerous novelists, poets, politicians and philosophers.
