Zadie Smith: After the First Decade 4/7-11/2010

This panel will draw together examinations of Zadie Smith's fiction (including early short stories) and/or her journalism a decade after her first major publication White Teeth (2000). Surprisingly little has been published on the writer by academics, and yet her work appears on courses worldwide. The proposed panel will consider whether new perspectives might be introduced that can cast new critical light on variously, her fictional oeuvre, her public pronouncements, and the emphasis of much of her critical and journalistic writing. Send abstracts to Philip Tew .
