I’ve just returned from Hull, where I presented a paper on Stevie Smith’s ‘The Holiday’ at a one-day conference on mid-century women’s writing.
Nearly two months after the first Stevie Smith conference, I’m finally getting round to writing it up!
I’m very excited to announce that I’m organising the first (as far as I know) one-day conference on the work of Stevie Smith! This has been a few months in the planning now, and we began to distribute the call for papers yesterday.
The conference will take place on 11 March 2016, at Jesus College, Oxford. You can see the conference website here, and this is the CFP:
Over this year, I’ve been helping to organise the Oxford English Graduate Conference on ‘Value’.
It finally happened all in one go yesterday, and now I need to sleep for a week.
Last Saturday was a major milestone of my first term as a DPhil: the New Work in Modernist Studies conference, run by the British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS). It was my first ever conference, and I was fairly (read extremely) nervous, but I’d heard good things. A relaxed atmosphere, helpful feedback, great people.
