A Century On: Modernist Studies in Wales
The Inaugural Modernist Network Cymru Conference
The Research Institute of the Arts and Humanities,
Swansea University, Monday 7 September 2015
Keynote speaker: Professor Angharad Price (Bangor University)
The 2010s have been a busy decade for modernist scholars. In 2010, the inaugural BAMS conference considered Virginia Woolf's (in)famous assertion that 'On or about December 1910, human character changed'; in 2013, BBC Radio 3 ran a series of programmes celebrating Paris' annus mirabilis, exemplified by the 1913 premiere of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring; and in 2014 we celebrated Dylan Thomas' birth in a year-long series of events.

"Poetics: (The Next) 25 Years" Conference, April 9-10, 2016
This panel seeks interesting and innovative papers in the field of adaptation studies. As Linda Hutcheon writes in A Theory of Adaptation, adapters "are just as likely to want to contest the aesthetic or political values of the adapted text as to pay homage." Our panelists will explore the political uses to which adaptation is put, considering why and how authors adapt specific texts for political purposes. We will consider the possibilities and limitations of using adaptation as a political tool.
