This conference will reassess the stereotypes of the grim North and the
beautiful South in order to investigate literary representations from
and about the north of England.

With a view to making visible the North of England as a significant
trope as well as a vibrant location for literature from the most
contemporary to the nineteenth century, this conference will challenge
the destructive stereotypes of the North which appear to be gaining
momentum.
