New Work in Modernist Studies, Liverpool, 6 Dec 2019 (register by 25 Nov)

NWiMS 2019 draft programme

Registration is now open for the ninth one-day graduate conference on New Work in Modernist Studies, which will take place on Friday 6 December 2019 at the University of Liverpool, in conjunction with the Modernist Network Cymru (MONC), the London Modernism Seminar, the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the Northern Modernism Seminar, the Midlands Modernist Network and the British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS).

BAMS is dedicated to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion. As in previous years, this conference will take the form of an interdisciplinary programme reflecting the full diversity of current graduate work in modernist studies.

The day, which also marks the relaunch of the Northern Modernism Seminar, will include a plenary session with Dr Beryl Pong (Sheffield) and will close with a discussion of the legacies of modernism, for which we’ll be joined by writers Preti Taneja (We That Are Young, 2017) and Chris McCabe (Dedalus, 2018), and Eloise Millar, editor and co-founder of Galley Beggar Press. This will be followed by a drinks reception.

The main part of the day will run from roughly 10am-5.30pm, followed by the evening plenary session and drinks, which will finish by 8 pm.

Registration deadline: Monday 25 November.
