'Transatlantic Literature in Context' Seminar Series

At Oxford, since the beginning of the year, I have been co-organising a seminar series on 'Transatlantic Literature in Context'. It's been going really well - we've had invitees discuss everything from outlaws to Pynchon by way of French translations of 1950s American poetry, and John Berryman's transatlantic influences! Next week we are listening to a talk on 'Paul Muldooon's Clever Mourning', and two weeks later we are being treated to a seminar paper on European emigres and neon lights. It has been a wonderful experience to invite speakers from the UK, Ireland and France to give talks - and we are hoping to extend the talks into next year. Last week, at the British Association of American Studies Conference in Exeter, I tried to promote the series further - so hopefully we shall get a similarly eclectic range of papers for the following academic year!

You can find out more about the series, and access the jazzy (colour) poster - no mean feat for an English academic - by clicking on the link at Oxford's Faculty of English weblearn pages.

  2. If anyone knows and understand well about the transatlantic you certainly be more engaged in such context and will know about the importance and how it comes to the right operation, although the consideration made in this regard also been more inspiring one to the nature. literature review ideas
