You are warmly invited to “Writing the Brontës 200 Years After: A Symposium”, an event organized by the Centre for Victorian Literature and Culture at the School of English (University of Kent, Canterbury, UK) to mark the bicentenary of Charlotte Brontë’s birth.
On this occasion we will have the pleasure of having three inspiring and enthusiast researchers on the Brontës as speakers: Sarah Fermi, Dr Patsy Stoneman, and Dr Siv Jensson. The symposium will work around the idea of what it means to “write” the Brontës nowadays: main challenges, questions without an answer, the reliability of the many biographies that have been published, theories and hypothesis about a literary family whose life remains a mystery in many senses.
This is an open-to-all event to take place on Friday 18th March at 4-6 pm in Keynes Lecture Theatre 3 (University of Kent, Canterbury). The talks will be followed by a Q&A round-table hosted by Dr Sara Lyons and a wine reception. Please see the poster below for further details.?
Please join us for what we are sure will be a highly interesting and enlightening session about the three sisters who revolutionized the British literary scene in the nineteenth century.
