The New North East: Free one-day symposium

July 13th 2015
University of Sunderland

The New North East is an interdisciplinary gathering which will bring together scholars and practitioners working in the field of ‘cultural studies’ (broadly understood to include history, literature, linguistics, visual arts and media studies). It is hoped that the forum will allow participants to share developments in their disciplines, especially those which have opened up new avenues of research and/or shed new light on more traditional objects of enquiry in the study of North East England and North East Englishness. We hope the exciting range of talks will attract interest from academics, students and members of the public from across the region. A number of academics from Newcastle University (past and present) will be speaking:

Confirmed speakers

Professor John Tomaney (Bartlett School of Planning, University College London);
Professor Karen Corrigan or Dr Adam Mearns (School of English Literature, Language & Linguistics, University of Newcastle)

Professor John Kippin (Northern Centre of Photography, University of Sunderland)
