Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies at the University of Westminster is delighted to host the 17th Westminster Colloquium  entitled ‘Narratives of Suburbia’ on Friday 15th June 2012.
 
The colloquium aims to assess contemporary representations of suburbia in British and North American fiction, with a particular focus on the exponential growth of suburbia since the Second World War and the fictional offshoots it has produced. By exploring the work of Anglo-American authors, the objective is to identify thematic and stylistic areas of convergence and divergence.
 
 
Keynote addresses by Mark Clapson (Reader in History, University of Westminster) and Martin Dines (Senior Lecturer in English Literature, Kingston University)
 
Speakers: Nick Hubble (Brunel), Professor Neil Campbell (Derby), John Beck (Newcastle), Rupa Huq (Kingston), Christine Berberich (Portsmouth), Martyn Colebrook (Hull).

 
Entrance is FREE but space is limited so please book your place in advance by contacting the organisers.
