Event Details

The ‘Placing the Author’ conference seeks to explore the surge of enthusiasm for visiting places associated with authors and their works which occurred over the course of the nineteenth century, alongside the related interest in the preservation and consecration of authors’ houses. Papers at the conference will explore what literary tourists sought to experience, and the ways in which these experiences were communicated to a wider audience. 

A full programme is available here:
