In celebration, the Centre for Life-Writing Research at King's College, London, and the Department of English & Drama at the British Library – home, since 2009, to the major collection of Berger's papers – are holding a series of events.

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.
This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.
