Reading Jean Rhys
Thursday 8 July 2010
King's College, London
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge and King's College, London are organising
a one-day international conference on the work of Jean Rhys.
The known story of Jean Rhys is of a novelist who achieved recognition in
literary circles of the 1920s and 30s, but was then 'lost' to the public eye,
and assumed dead, only to be 'found' again shortly before the publication of
her most famous work Wide Sargasso Sea (1966). Since her death thirty years
ago, Rhys's reputation and influence has grown but there has been no British
conference dedicated to her work.
Keynote lecture: Mary Lou Emery (Iowa)
Guest speakers: Christina Britzolakis (Warwick); Helen Carr (Goldsmith's);
Mary Joannou (Anglia Ruskin University); Andrew Thacker (De Montfort); Lilian
Pizzichini The Blue Hour and Polly Teale After Mrs Rochester (Artistic
Director, Shared Experience)
Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words in length, including your
name, position, institutional affiliation and audio-visual equipment needs to
the conference organisers:
Dr Anna Snaith (King's): anna.snaith at kcl.ac.uk
Dr Jeannette Baxter (ARU): jeannette.baxter at anglia.ac.uk
Dr Tory Young (ARU): tory.young at anglia.ac.uk
