Plans for the William Golding Centenary Conference at the University of Exeter Cornwall Campus, in Tremough on 16-18 September 2011, are well underway. We have our plenary speakers: Judy Carver and John Carey. We have also accepted a number of proposals for shorter papers, as listed below. The registration details will be published soon. I have created a Facebook group here for regular conference updates. If you would like to join and can't work out how, please email me and I will arrange it.
The call for papers has a deadline of 31 March 2011.
The conference will include an exhibition of unpublished papers and a visit to William Golding's home at Tullimaar on Sunday 18 September. We are extremely grateful to his family, who have been supportive throughout.
Speakers will include:
Nadia D'Amelio (University of Mons)
Roger Kojecky (The Christian Literary Studies Group)
Nick Groom (University of Exeter)
Mark Rawlinson (University of Leicester)
Charlotte Sleigh (University of Kent)
Sola Ogunbayo (Redeemer's University, Nigeria)
Miroslawa Buchholtz (Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland)
