Symposium: “Home, Crisis and the Imagination” (Eccles Centre)

March 30, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A one day interdisciplinary symposium organised by the AHRC-funded network “Home, Crisis and the Imagination” based in the School of English, University of Leeds.  The day will explore how home and crisis are interlinked in the imagination, and investigate the extraordinary power that home has as both a physical location and an object of representation.

The morning will include a symposium discussion of shared texts, provided in advance. The afternoon keynote address will be given by Professor Cindi Katz (CUNY), “Domesticating the Crisis: Children and the Management of Insecurity”.

Enquiries about the symposium should be sent to the organisers Lucy Arnold (Network Administrator) and Dr Cara Rodway (Eccles Centre for American Studies).

The delegate fee for the one-day symposium is £5. This includes lunch and refreshments.
