English Literature Events in September 2015


As far as literary events in the Northeast go, September is the calm before the autumnal storm that is Durham Book Festival in early October. Nevertheless, our English Events newsletter for September features some exciting free lectures to wile away the lengthening evenings.

LSLS 2015The main events this month feature the best of postgraduate research from our region. At the Mining Institute in Newcastle the Northumbria Summer Speaker series comes to a close with a set of three lectures on science fiction on 10th September. Here in Durham, the Late Summer Lecture series continues, with talks every Wednesday on Victorian Vikings (taking place tomorrow, 2nd September), T.S. Eliot, Old English riddles, the literary salon, and a literary history of chocolate. The last will include some edible delights, but all the lectures promise to be a feast for the ears.

And continuing the bodily theme, the Life of Breath project sees its Durham launch on 23rd September, with a range of perspectives on the theme of ‘invisibility.’

We will add more over the coming month if we spot other events – and please let us know if you missed yours! For reminders of forthcoming events, do keep in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook.
