David Jones: Dialogues with the Past

An International, Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of York,
U.K. (21-23 July 2016)

*Registration Now Open*

As 2016 marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, which
profoundly shaped Jones's imagination and thought, it provides an ideal
moment for this conference to reconsider the entirety of Jones's engagement
with the many, various, elusive and intertwined 'pasts' through which he
conceived history and culture. It will be an opportunity to explore Jones's
own style, subject matter, allusive practice and intellectual questions
including the role of 'memory', 'inheritance' and 'history' in art and
life, while also reflecting upon Jones's own past and contemporary moment.

Keynote Speakers: Tom Dilworth (English), Adam Schwartz (History) and Paul
Hills (History of Art)

In addition the Conference Dinner, Poetry Recitals, Wine Reception and two
Art Exhibitions,
​​the Events Schedule includes:

Thursday 21st: 'An Artist's Retrospect': Selected Screenings of Lost Jones
Interviews and Programmes. with Anne Price-Owen

Friday 22nd: OPUS ANGLICANUM's 'DAVID JONES: July 1916, The Battle of
Mametz Wood from In Parenthesis'

The panels will explore themes such as 'Picturing WWI', 'Refiguring Rome',
'The Anglo-Saxon Tradition', 'The Matter of In Parenthesis', 'Sacramental
Thinking' and 'A Jonesian Theology of History'. Over thirty papers will be
presented by scholars including Kathleen Henderson Staudt, Paul Robichaud,
Tom Goldpaugh, Christine Pagnoulle, Brad Haas, Tom Villis, Luke Thurston,
Hilary Davies and Fr. John David Ramsey, among many others.
