Despite being written over 35 years ago, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985), set in a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude, has been making headlines in 2017 due to the remarkable Hulu produced television series (screened in the UK on Channel Four). This symposium seeks to bring together diverse scholars for a day of discussion and debate.
