Toni Morrison: New Directions
This one day international symposium seeks to assess, revisit and reflect on the work of the contemporary African American novelist and critic Toni Morrison.
There will be particular emphasis on the author’s most recent publications as well as on new theoretical, critical and comparative approaches to her oeuvre. Our keynote lectures come from the leading Morrison scholars Prof Justine Tally (Universidad de la Laguna) and Dr Alan Rice (University of Central Lancashire).
This event is supported by the British Association for American Studies, the Department of English Studies at the University of Durham and the Clinton Institute for American Studies at University College Dublin.
