The Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

Louisville, KY | 21-23 February 2013

Deadline extended to October 7

As we continue our reflections on Lawrence Durrell inspired by his centenary in 2012, a number of questions remain. What is Lawrence Durrell's legacy? How have we read his body of work? How have we misread it? How has it shaped or been excluded from a sense of canon? Where do we recognize Durrell's influence, and how do we "place" Durrell's work in the contexts in which it makes the most sense?
