International conference: Carpentaria by Alexis Wright, a self-governing literature that belongs to place
19-20 October 2021 at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, France
In person and online conference.
“The imaginative literary mind is as boundless as it is borderless and bountiful in its way, finding ways of powerfully creating anew the already imagined with the unimagined or unimaginable.” Alexis Wright 
This international conference seeks to offer new perspectives on Alexis Wright’s novel Carpentaria, and at the same time to provide insights for lectures and students who are working on the novel as part of the French Agrégation exam.
