22-23 September 2006
A two-day international conference hosted by the School of Literatures,

Keynote Speaker: Professor Simon Frith
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is
done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
A revolution is not a dinner-party.
We are causing the reversal of evolution.
-James Hart, Eugenic Manifesto
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
-Bob Dylan, 'The Times They Are A-Changin' '
