Britain’s Second World War After 1945: Fictional Narrative and Historical Consciousness

6th February 2013, 16:30 to 18:00, Seminar Room, Hallgarth House, Dr Mark Rawlinson (Leicester University)

A staff and postgraduate research seminar.

Mark Rawlinson works on nineteenth- and twentieth century literature, especially narrative fiction and poetry. His research has a particular focus on the literature of war. British Writing of the Second World War (2000) was a study of the literary culture of wartime Britain (1939-1945), and that investigation is being extended to how the meanings of the Second World War have been reassessed in fiction and film since 1945.
