John Clare in Space: Poetry, Nature and Contemporary Culture

Immagine
On 30-31 May 2014 Iain Sinclair, Andrew Kötting and other speakers, will lead a two-day conference at Oxford Brookes University to celebrate the 150th anniversary of English poet John Clare‘s death, who passed away on 20 May 1864.

In essence, this will be a broad celebration of Clare, marking 150 years since his death on 20 May 1864, so the conference welcomes all original responses to the full breadth of his world and work. The conference is generously supported by the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre, the John Clare Society and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Oxford Brookes.
