Whitman 200: An International Conference

University of Bolton, UK, 23-24 May, 2019.

In commemoration of poet Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday, and to celebrate Bolton as a centre of interest for Whitman scholars and readers, this two-day conference will explore new critical ways of thinking about Whitman. Its vision is to provide contexts and connections developing from Whitman’s influence and ideas in the nineteenth century through to the modern era – particularly as they relate to ideas of community and identity.
