John Clare in Space – Conference and CFP

Poetry, Nature and Contemporary Culture
150th Anniversary Conference

30–31 May 2014, Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, UK
This two-day conference at Oxford Brookes University seeks to explore the work, life, contexts and culture of the English poet, John Clare (1793–1864). Clare died in Northampton on 20 May 1864. 150 years after his death, delegates are asked to explore the places and spaces of Clare’s life and work, and the broad dimensions of his engagement with traditions across literary, rural and folk cultures, and to investigate the reasons Clare might be increasingly relevant to contemporary culture. Further details and CFP at http://www.english-languages.brookes.ac.uk/Research/Conferences/2014/John-Clare/
