Symposium (Birmingham 2018)


The symposium aims to enable and encourage the following (and more):

  • showcasing of new work
  • previewing of work-in-progress
  • revisiting and building on key work on the New York School
  • workshopping of research ideas/problems
  • sharing of resources
  • making new contacts within our field.

Talks: Speakers are asked to limit their talks to 5-10 minutes. Talks can be on anything relating to the symposium’s theme/aims (and can be as polished or informal as you like). The reason we ask for short talks, rather than conference papers, is because this symposium aims to cultivate conversation. Shorter talks will allow as much of the day as possible to be devoted to discussion, and will allow for a wide range of scholarly responses.

Where/when: the symposium will take place at Winterbourne House, University of Birmingham, starting at 9.30 and finishing at 5.00. Directions can be found here.

Food: a vegetarian lunch and refreshments (tea, coffee, biscuits throughout the day) will be provided. We will also provide a pre-poetry snack in the evening.

Accessibility: The venue is accessible to wheelchair users. Detailed accessibility information can be found here.

Fee: there is no fee for the symposium.

Babies: if you need to bring a little one with you, please do!
