Event description: 

For the fourth Anglophone Histories Conference on Friday 21 April, there will be two panels, one late morning and a second after lunch, followed by a response from our guest speaker.

This is a cross-period annual event, founded in April 2014, in which the English department as a whole aims to initiate an informal but vigorous conversation about our collective stake in the cultural history of the English language. It differs from all the other departmental colloquia and workshops in that it is a unique opportunity for Faculty in English to discuss topics of recent research, not in separate events, but collectively, and across different periods and topics of expertise. All are warmly welcome to participate in the day’s discussion.

We are delighted to announce that the participants this year will be:
Roberta Frank, Joe Cleary, Steph Newell, and Marta Figlerowicz, Larry Manley, Joe Roach, John Durham Peters, Jonathan Kramnick, Naomi Levine, and Ayesha Ramachandran.

John Guillory has graciously agreed to act as our guest respondent to the day’s two panels.

Open to: 
Yale Community Only
