Three scholars from Brunel University – Nick Hubble, John Roberts and Peter Wilkin – will lead a full day’s symposium. Distinguished academics from eight UK and US universities will present and discuss the latest thinking about George Orwell’s cultural legacy from a range of innovative, challenging and entertaining perspectives – see below. This is the first such symposium to be held in the country of his dwelling. The symposium is open to everyone to explore the literary and cultural influences of this globally-respected author.
This groundbreaking event is sponsored by the Brunel Centre for Contemporary Writing for venue hire and Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation for use of the minibus.
