T. E. Hulme Colloquium:
Revisiting Hulme on the 130th Anniversary of his Birth

14th September, 2013
Wolfson College, Oxford

A one-day international colloquium to mark the 130th anniversary of the birth of T. E. Hulme (1883-1917) will be held at Wolfson College, Oxford on 14th September 2013. Poet, philosopher, political commentator and art critic, Hulme occupies a central position in modernist studies: he was, according to T. S. Eliot, the 'forerunner of a new attitude of mind, which should be the twentieth-century mind.'

Over recent years, there have been a series of major contributions to the study of Hulme's work by scholars from various disciplines, and his thought and legacy continue to attract the attention of new critics. This colloquium brings together established and emerging voices in the field, enabling their first direct exchange in over a decade. The event will also introduce Hulme's writings to those unfamiliar with his work.

Confirmed speakers include:
Patricia Rae (Queen's, Ontario, Canada)
Robert Ferguson (author and scholar)
Helen Carr (Goldsmiths, London)
Laura Marcus (New College, Oxford)
Rebecca Beasley (Queen's, Oxford)
Anne Fernihough (Girton, Cambridge)
Finn Fordham (Royal Holloway)
Oliver Tearle (Loughborough)
Bernard Vere (Sotheby's Institute of Art)
Christos Hadjiyiannis (Wolfson, Oxford)
Henry Mead (Worcester, Oxford)

The colloquium will conclude with an exhibition on the New Age curated by Matt Huculak (Modernist Versions Project).
