We are delighted to announce that Associate Professor Elizabeth DeLoughrey of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) will be joining us in York on 1st July for an afternoon of pre-conference discussion. The afternoon will include a postgraduate workshop and a public talk by Professor DeLoughrey.

Professor DeLoughrey is renowned for her work on postcolonial ecocriticism, globalization, and environmental humanities, among other areas, and we hope that the events on the 1st will begin conversations that continue into our conference on 24-25 July.

Both events will take place in the Berrick Saul Building, the workshop in seminar room BS/008 and the talk in the Bowland Auditorium.

There will be limited places at the workshop and we recommend that you reserve one via Eventbrite.
