Registration is open for The Condemned Playground: Aldous Huxley and his Contemporaries (Balliol College, Oxford University, 1-4* September 2013).

Please note the new dates.

Scheduled to coincide with the centenary of Aldous Huxley’s arrival at Balliol College as an undergraduate, this major international conference seeks both to reassess his diverse oeuvre, and to bring new attention to a constellation of writers whose work developed in dialogue with literary modernism. The conference, which incorporates the Fifth International Aldous Huxley Symposium, will look broadly at Huxley’s engagements with fellow British and American writers and with some of the key movements of his time.

The programme includes papers on Mansfield, Orwell, Waugh, Isherwood, Eliot, Auden and others, as well as a panel on Iris Murdoch. Confirmed plenary speakers: David Ayers, David Bradshaw, Katherine Bucknell, Jonathan Greenberg, Deborah Longworth, Seamus Perry, Max Saunders, and Alexander Waugh.
