CONFERENCE REGISTRATION

‘TENNYSON’S FUTURES’, 27-28 MARCH 2009, ENGLISH FACULTY, UNIVERSITY OF
OXFORD

Tennyson was acutely aware of his place in time, and the future, with all
of the uncertainties and certainties that it holds, is one of the central
preoccupations of his poetry. The bicentenary of Tennyson’s birth in 2009
provides an ideal opportunity to consider the poet’s position both in
relation to his future and to ours. This two-day conference will explore
possible future directions in Tennyson studies and ask vital questions
about Tennyson’s conception of and relationship to the future. How does
Tennyson imagine the various futures that he describes in his poetry? How
is his role as a poet affected by his need to look forward? How have
later writers and artists responded to Tennyson’s work? And how might the
emergence of new critical trends affect assessments of Tennyson in the
future?

Speakers include:
Matthew Bevis, Matthew Campbell, Robert Douglas-Fairhurst, Eric
Griffiths, Samantha Matthews, Francis O’Gorman, Cornelia Pearsall, Seamus
Perry, Christopher Ricks, W. David Shaw, Nicholas Shrimpton, Helen Small,
Herbert F.Tucker.

FEBRUARY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CURRENTLY REDUCED CONFERENCE FEE.
