CRITICAL NEGOTIATIONS IN BLACK BRITISH LITERATURE AND THE ARTS

Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK
March 13 to 14, 2008

This conference focuses upon local, international and transnational
engagements with Black British literature and the arts – in relation to its
production, reception and cultural position. Through the multiple
disciplines of the arts, it creates a meeting point for prominent and
emerging scholars, writers and practitioners in order to explore the impact
of this field, both at home and abroad. The context is one of critical
investigation and celebration; a journey along diasporic and aesthetic routes.
