Wales and the World: New Critical Perspectives

March 4 @ 13:00 - 14:30

First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, introduces:

Wales and the World: New Critical Perspectives

Welsh writers and intellectuals have long located themselves within an international milieu.  Join the Centre for Research into the English Literature and Language of Wales (CREW) as we launch three new volumes in the University of Wales Press series ‘Writing Wales in English’.  The three new books include an investigation into different facets of Wales’s intellectual and imaginative relationship with Europe, a collection of new critical perspectives on Dylan Thomas and the first major assessments of Ron Berry. This wide-ranging event addresses topics such as disability and eco-literature, literature as cultural capital, and Welsh writing on Europe and the world.

Speakers: M. Wynn Thomas, author of Eutopia: Studies in Cultural Euro-Welshness, 1850-1980; Georgia Burdett and Sarah Morse, editors of Fight and Flight: Essays on Ron Berry; Kieron Smith and Rhian Barfoot, editors of New Theoretical Perspectives on Dylan Thomas. They will be in discussion with Kirsti Bohata and Daniel Williams, co-editors of the ‘Writing Wales in English’ series.

Guests: Rt Hon Mark Drakeford MS, First Minister of Wales; Elwen Evans QC; D.J. Britton.
This is an English-language online event.
