Professor Francis Barker died in December 1999. He had taught in the Department of Literature at the University of Essex for 25 years and was renowned for his work on early modern literature and critical theory, and for his involvement in the Essex Sociology of Literature conferences and symposia.
In his memory the Department is organising a conference to take place on Saturday and Sunday, 20-21 January 2001 at the University of Essex. Offers of papers are invited, particularly from ex-students and comrades of Francis, but also from anyone who was moved or influenced by his work. All topics are welcome. Papers are likely to be of 15-20 minutes and grouped into panels, with adequate time for discussion.
The organising committee for the conference is Simon Barker (firstname.lastname@example.org), Leon Burnett (email@example.com), Maurizio Calbi (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tracey Hill (email@example.com), Peter Hulme (firstname.lastname@example.org)).
Offers of papers should go to Tracey Hill, either by e-mail or snail mail (preferably by 15th September). If you would like to be sent further details of the conference arrangements when they become available (over the summer), please send a short e-mail message to Peter Hulme.
