As part of the ongoing “Textual Afterlives” project, co-organised by Jeremy Smith (University of Glasgow), Ian Johnson (University of St Andrews), Crawford Gribben (Trinity College Dublin), and John Thompson (QUB), a two-day event is being held in Belfast on the 8-9th April, 2011.
A workshop will be held on Friday 8th, including a “sandpit” event at which participants will offer a brief response (no more than five minutes) to the symposium theme, “Textual Afterlives”, an open lecture by Mimi Godfrey, from the Folger Library, Washington DC, and a graduate masterclass. On Saturday 9th, there will be a day-trip to the Robinson Library in Armagh.
Throughout the event, there will be contributions from the symposium’s visiting scholars, Richard Beadle, Rolf Bremmer, Joel Fredell, Vincent Gillespie, Mimi Godfrey (keynote speaker), Rich McCoy, Cathy Shrank, Andrew Prescott, Beth Robertson, Sebastiaan Verweij and Liz Elliott.
The event is due to take place in the McClay library, and those interested in attending (either the workshop, day-trip or both) should express their interest to John Thompson: email@example.com
