Our English Events newsletter for February 2015 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.
This month’s events at Durham have a dramatic flavour, with two Shakespeare lectures on Limits Lost and Limits Regained in Shakespeare, with Professor Any Mousley, and the Robin Dix memorial lecture on David Garrick’s Shakespeare Jubilee of 1769, with Professor Ewan Fernie. Staying in the theatre, a conference on Ambiguous Sexualities on the Eighteenth-Century Stage runs on 5th March, with a seminar on Undressing Mr Noah: Uxor and her Husband in the Late Medieval North East on 3rd. Aside from these, there is a full programme of regular seminars, workshops and lectures from Inventions of the Text, the Institute of Advanced Study, and the Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies among others.
Beyond Durham University, the ever combative Terry Eagleton will be lecturing Against Culture at Northumbria, while the recent winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction, Helen Macdonald, will be in in conversation with William Fiennes at the Newcastle Centre for Literary Arts.
This is just a taste of the wide array of events taking place in our region. For full listings, check out our newsletter, as well as other regional sources such as New Writing North and the Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts.
