Young Adult Gothic Fiction: A Symposium
This symposium, co-organised by Catherine Spooner and Chloe Buckley, will bring together authors, figures from the publishing industry, academics and young adult readers to address the surge of Gothic writing aimed at children and young adults in the last ten to fifteen years. The event will include presentations of their research findings by Spooner and Buckley, readings and talks by selected authors and a round table discussion engaging with the current state of young adult publishing. Gothic is currently on the A-level English literature syllabus and sixth-form students in the region will be invited to attend free of charge.
Nowhere Near London: A Dramatised Reading
This project will involve the dramatic adaptation of John Schad's novel The Late Walter Benjamin and will become a staged reading involving local people from the Council estate near London in which the novel is set. The reading will be staged both on the estate and in the Watford Palace Theatre 'green room bar.' The whole process of dramatisation will be filmed by Frederic Dalmasso. The project is also supported by a FASS Knowledge Exchange award.
Congratulations to all involved.
