We are delighted to invite you and your Level 3 English students to our English Literature Subject Conference. This free conference is designed to supplement your students’ current or future studies by focusing on two areas of specialism at Liverpool Hope University.
The conference will be taking place on:
Wednesday 10th December 2014
From 2pm – 4.30pm at our Hope Park Campus, Hope Park, Liverpool, L16 9JD.
The schedule for the day is as follows:
1.30pm – 2pm Arrival at Hope. The Conference will begin promptly at 2pm.
2pm – 2.15pm Welcome to Liverpool Hope and our English Literature course
2.15pm – 3.15pm Victorian Landscapes
This workshop will focus on the representation of rural and urban landscapes in Victorian fiction, with a particular focus on Charles Dickens’s Coketown, George Eliot’s Middlemarch and Thomas Hardy’s Wessex.
3.15pm – 4.15pm Wilfred Owen
Wilfred Owen is one of the best-known poets of the twentieth century and the quintessential war poet. He is regularly studied at schools and colleges but has he been misrepresented and misunderstood? This session will be based on Guy Cuthbertson’s new biography of Owen for Yale University Press, and it will be of help to any A-Level students studying the Literature of the First World War.
4.15pm – 4.30pm Closing Address and Q & A
4.30pm Depart Hope
Please note, due to the interactive nature of the Conference we have a maximum of 25 places available so early booking is advised.
If you or any of your students would like to attend the conference or you have any questions please email Andrew Cooper, Recruitment Officer, at [email protected]
