The conference will begin with a public reading on 26 September 2018, 6.15pm, with authors from Russia, Germany, France, and England reading from classic early-20th-century texts as well as from their own work.

2018 Transnational Lives and Cosmopolitan Biographies (Wolfson College, Oxford)

This one-day conference, to be held at Wolfson College, Oxford on 17 March 2018, will explore the interaction between life-writing, transnationalism and language-led research. Co-organised by Sandra Mayer (University of Zurich) and Philip Ross Bullock (Oxford), it is a collaboration between Writing 1900, the Oxford Centre for Life Writing (OCLW), The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), and the AHRC-funded research project, Creative Multilingualism.

2017 Other Capitals of the Nineteenth Century (Utrecht)

These three seminars organised by Richard Hibbitt were part of the Annual Meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association. They reflected the group’s ongoing engagement with theories of international literary mobility and competition put forward by Pascale Casanova in The World Republic of Letters, and included papers on Calcutta, Dresden, Florence Rome and Trieste among others.

2016 Mapping Europe (Seminarzentrum Gut Siggen)

The group returned to Siggen thanks to the generous support of the Alfred Toepfer Foundation to launch a new project on the intersection between geography, cartography and literary cultures. The meeting included panel discussions on cultural geography and intermediality based on pre-circulated readings as well as sessions dedicated to the mapping of transnational space in the digital humanities.
