Diasporsas: 3rd Global Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 11:04am
Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

The dispersion of communities of people physically displaced from their perceived ‘homeland’ to other parts of the globe has been a defining feature of the human experience. Commonly referred to as diasporas, these groups have travelled to other lands for reasons including to escape persecution, to seek a better life and to exploit economic opportunities. As a critical framework, diaspora directs our attention to the impact of relocation/dislocation on the lives and identities of affected individuals, the homelands they leave and the new places where they make their homes.

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.
