BACLS 2021 Seminar Series - Neoliberalism and Contemporary World Literature

June 3rd, 2021 by Diletta De Cristofaro, in

Guest speakers: Sharae Deckard (University College, Dublin), Stephen Shapiro (Warwick) and Jenny Bavidge (Cambridge)

In the fourth in our series of online seminars, to be held on 11th June 2021, 2pm - 3.30pm, we are very pleased to welcome Sharae Deckard and Stephen Shapiro, editors of World Literature, Neoliberalism, and the Culture of Discontent, which won the BACLS Essay Collection Prize in 2020. Sharae and Stephen will be talking about their book and reflecting on the ways in which the contemporary situation has developed since its publication in the light of, among other factors, the Covid-19 pandemic, the Brexit deal, the defeat of Donald Trump and the first few months of the Biden-Harris administration. We are also pleased to welcome Jenny Bavidge, Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Cambridge University, who will be providing initial responses to Sharae and Stephen’s talk and leading the follow-up discussion with participants.
