A day conference at Selwyn College, University of Cambridge on Friday 12 April. The conference will examine the work of British women novelists who have found their inspiration and subject matter in Greece, as well as novels by Greek women writers who have engaged with British settings and subjects.
The authors to be discussed range from Rose Macaulay and Virginia Woolf to Victoria Hislop and Sofka Zinovieff on the British side; on the Greek side we shall engage with the work of Angela Dimitrakaki and a number of other contemporary authors. We believe there is a rich vein of cultural interactions which have not been specifically examined and this conference will therefore be breaking new ground.
