Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose *extended deadline*

Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose.

13-14 June 2019, Hull History Centre, Hull, UK.

Co-convened by final-year ‘Larkin-focused’ PhD researchers, Rebecca Devine (University of Hull) and Kyra Piperides Jaques (University of York).

The past few years have been particularly exciting for the Larkin scholar. With Hull – the poet’s workplace and home of thirty years – selected as UK City of Culture 2017, this undoubtedly engendered a renewed interest in not only the work of Philip Larkin, but the life of the poet as well. We expect that this will only be amplified by the successive title being handed to Coventry, Larkin’s birthplace and childhood home.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

This session invites submissions for twenty-minute, scholarly presentations on any aspect of John Milton. Especially welcome are proposals addressing the conference theme, “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.” From Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost to Satan and Jesus in Paradise Regain’d to the Lady and Comus in A Masque, Milton encouraged readers to think power, identity, and relationships in many forms and in many contexts. What might these intersections of power, identity, and relationship reveal to us about Milton as a poet and political activist? By Friday, May 25, please submit an abstract of 200 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to Dr.
