Allusions and Echoes: Cultural Recirculation and Recycling
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.
16 June, 2012
This one-day international colloquium will bring together scholars from the US, India, Switzerland, Sweden and the UK to explore the various ways in which texts communicate over borders of space, time, genre and medium. Topics covered range from canonical works by Ovid, Shakespeare and Milton to more popular and contemporary literature, including the novels of Terry Pratchett and male pregnancy fan fiction. The colloquium will invite us to think about why certain themes and motifs capture the imagination of authors, readers and viewers, and about how they are recycled and recirculated from one period, or one audience, to another.
Keynote speaker is Dr Raphael Lyne, Cambridge University, UK.
The colloquium, which is jointly organised by Dr Berit Åström (Umeå University, Sweden) and Professor Sarah Annes Brown (Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK), is aimed at anyone working in the fields of English literature, cultural studies or related disciplines.
Although there is no conference fee, there is a limited amount of seats, so we ask that those interested in attending to contact Dr Åström (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than 5 June.
