Plans for our international conference at the University of Bedford in 2019 are well under way and we will announce more details soon – please see the Conferences tab above. Our keynote speakers will be Professor Andrew Bennett and Professor Nicholas Royle, authors of the ground-breaking Elizabeth Bowen and the Dissolution of the Novel (1994). We are looking forward to hearing papers from international Bowen scholars and enthusiasts – and there will be time for socialising afterwards!
We are hoping to organise some official Elizabeth Bowen Society events this year. One possibility is a visit to Farahy, Co. Cork, for the annual commemoration service on the first weekend of September, a walk around the area and site of Bowen’s Court, and dinner. Please see ‘Events’ – which we hope to add to.
If you haven’t found us on Facebook, please join us there: https://www.facebook.
And finally, we have a keen steering committee for the Society, but still have a couple of vacancies to fill. If you live in the UK or Ireland – or possibly further afield would work, too – please contact us if you’d be interested in joining. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
