The BACLS Edited Collection Prize
We are delighted to share the news that "World Literature, Neoliberalism, and the Culture of Discontent has been awarded the British Association for Contemporary Literary Studies 2019 Edited Collection Prize. Panellists thought that this hugely impressive collection makes a tremendous contribution to the kind of research that BACLS promotes.”
This is an essay collection that Stephen Shapiro and Sharae Deckard carried out for Prof Neil Lazarus' and Prof Pablo Mukherjee’s Palgrave series.
This is a culmination of work carried out by Mike Niblett, Claire Westall, Kerstin Oloff, and Richard Godden, who all have essays in it, so it speaks to the research culture of the department.
Term 3 events and speakers cancelled - further updates on events moved online forthcoming here
All term 3 events and speakers have been cancelled in line with Government advice. We will try and move some of these events online. A version of the Postgraduate Symposium is one such event, and more information about this virtual event will be posted here when we have further updates. Events that do not move online will be rescheduled at a later date.
Malcolm Hardman obituary
It is with sadness that we announce the death of former colleague, Dr Malcolm Hardman on 4 November 2019. Malcolm was a Reader in English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. He was a Senior Scholar in Classics at Trinity College, studied at Edinburgh, and taught at Hacettepe University, Turkey, Durham as well as Warwick.
His books included Ruskin and Bradford (1986), and Six Victorian Thinkers (1991) – both of which explore the interplay of ideas in local and worldwide cultural history. His A Kingdom in Two Parishes (1998) examined Lancashire Religious Writers and the English Monarchy in the period 1521-1689. His funeral is on 29 November at St James, Packington Park.
