In the wake of the European referendum result, what does literature have to contribute to current and future thinking about the relationship between the UK and the rest of Europe? How are works of fiction engaging with the socio-political shifts of the new millennium? And does literature still possess a pragmatic political function? In this one day conference, we aim to provide a forum for academics to position their own work in relation to the idea of European identity, and indeed to consider what part literature and those who study it might have in the forthcoming political landscape.
