International Conference on Literary Juvenilia

11th September 2013, 19:30 to 14th September 2013, 10:00, Professor Christine Alexander (University of New South Wales, Australia) and Professor Juliet McMaster (Emeritus of Alberta University)

This, the third international conference on Literary Juvenilia, aims to bring together all those interested in investigating the work of youthful writers.

Keynote addresses will be given by Professor Christine Alexander (University of New South Wales, Australia) and Professor Juliet McMaster (Emeritus of Alberta University) For more details about this conference, including the option of day packages, please email.

The conference programme is available here.

On Friday evening after the conference dinner there will be ' home theatricals' as a contrast to editorial and conceptual discussion: putting on a performance of Jane Austen's 'The Visit - a Comedy in Two Acts' a fifteen minute amateur performance which is driving Gillian Boughton to distraction in her search for props and costumes. If there is a head of drama out there prepared to allow us to raid their drama cupboard, she would be grateful. This performance is not open to the public but sympathetic English department postgraduates or staff could be given access, subject to the cast's sense of readiness for critical reception, if you send a personal email to Gillian on g.e.boughton@durham.ac.uk.

Contact literary.juvenilia@durham.ac.uk for more information about this event.
