Rupert Thomson: a critical symposium
14th June 2013
International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester
Keynote Speakers: John McAuliffe (Manchester) and Rupert Thomson
An academic conference supported by the University of Manchester @artsmethods and Gylphi's Contemporary Writers: Critical Essays series
Proposals are invited for papers for the first academic symposium focusing on contemporary writer Rupert Thomson, whose work includes eight novels (with Secrecy, his ninth, due in March 2013) and a celebrated memoir (This Party's Got to Stop, 2010). Despite widespread critical acclaim, there has as yet been no sustained academic engagement with Thomson's writing.
