Late Summer Lectures 2015 (Public Lecture Series, 19th August to 7th October)


LSLS 2015From Vikings to T.S. Eliot to chocolate in literature, this year’s annual Late Summer Lectures Series offers an exciting range of topics, with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary studies.

Now in its sixth year, the Late Summer Lecture Series enables doctoral and postdoctoral student from the Department of English in Durham, Newcastle, and York to broadcast their ground-breaking research to a wider audience. The full programme for the latest instalment is now available for viewing on the Late Summer Lecture Series website, and reflects the diverse and exploratory nature of research currently undertaken by scholars in the North East.

Lectures will be held in Alington House in Durham every Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 pm from 19 August to 7 October. The first lecture will take place on 19 August, featuring Elise Gayraud, whose audiovisual presentation will focus on the use of water in the mining industry and the natural risk it poses.

Podcasts from previous series in 2012, 2013, and 2014 are available to download from this blog.  Previous lectures cover topics such as the uncanny in the films of Wes Anderson and Jean-Pierre Jeunet as well as authorship in Muriel Sparks’ novel The Driver’s Seat.
