DURRELL SCHOOL OF CORFU
SEMINAR:

'THE WRITER'S REPUTATION: GENDER, TIME, GEOGRAPHY'

Corfu, Greece, 3-8 June 2007
www.durrell-school-corfu.org

The Durrell School of Corfu will host an international seminar on 'The
Writer's Reputation: Gender, Time, Geography' at its Library and Study
Centre, 3-8 June 2007.

The reputation of a writer is affected by many factors. For example, it is
common for a writer's reputation to suffer a decline in public interest and
appreciation after his/her death. Such a reputation may be enhanced in later
years by the renewal of critical interest.
