This interdisciplinary international conference, held in the city of Roald Dahl's birth and childhood in his centenary year, will give further impetus to the substantial critical attention devoted to the author's work by seeking new ways of understanding his achievement and place in twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture, broadly considered. The emphasis will be on defamiliarizing Dahl in the very act of bringing him 'home'.
