The International Laurence Sterne Foundation conference is being held 5-7 November 2015 at Northumbria University, Newcastle, England.
This conference will explore the life, afterlife, and works of Sterne, as well as Sterne within the broader context of 18th-century culture. This focus on Sterne’s context reflects the recent decision to broaden the scope of the Foundation’s journal, The Shandean, which is produced at Northumbria University.
Confirmed plenary speakers are:
Judith Hawley (Royal Holloway)
Tim Parnell (Goldsmiths)
James Raven (Essex)
Delegates wishing to present a paper must be members of the Foundation, the online membership form can be found here.
