Friday, January 12, 2018

We welcome early expressions of interest for this one-day conference will take place at The University Reading, UK in Fall 2018. More details to be posted soon.

Presentations will be of either 20 or 40 minutes duration. Although the conference is primarily concerned with literature, any approach to Ayn Rand from the Left is welcome.

ABOUT: 

Literary criticism on the Left has ignored Ayn Rand. Why engage work that is clearly so politically irredeemable? Especially when it is also so vulgar, so confused, so…silly?
