Twenty-First Century Perspectives on Kazuo Ishiguro – an international conference

About this Event

https://ishcon2020.wordpress.com/twenty-first-century-perspectives-on-kazuo-ishiguro/

Kazuo Ishiguro remains one of the finest writers of our times, yet, as the twenty-first century world is changing, how do we see these new, turbulent times reflected in his body of work? The early twenty-first-century presents us with a host of pressing contexts and challenges, from concerns about climate change and technological innovation to diversity issues and shifts in geopolitical power. To what extent does Ishiguro’s writing anticipate and comment on the early twenty-first century Zeitgeist? Surely, The Remains of the Day anticipates Brexit, Never Let Me Go argues against posthumanism, whilst The Buried Giant comments on our distracted, amnesic times. This conference invites critical and creative responses that connect Ishiguro’s work in new ways and/or situate it in new contexts.

We have made available 10 postgraduate bursaries in the form of fee waivers. These will be distributed on a first come first served basis. Please send an email to Prof Sebastian Groes (s.groes@wlv.ac.uk) to apply for the bursary.
