2013 Literary Spaces and Communities I (Centre for British Studies, Berlin)

Eight papers discussing how literature creates communities of authors and readers that are rooted in specific places (such as Dieppe, Florence, Rome, Venice, Bruges, London, Copenhagen and Paris) and yet transcend linguistic and national borders. The meeting, funded by the Humboldt University’s Kosmos programme, was followed by a tour of literary sights associated with Weimar Berlin, as seen particularly through the works of Isherwood.
