Seminars and Conferences

Very much looking forward to our colleague Fiona Barclay‘s Literature and Languages research seminar this afternoon on ‘Remembering Algeria: melancholy, depression and the colonizing of the pieds-noirs.’ Fiona is just back from the American Comparative Literature Association‘s annual conference in Seattle where she gave a paper entitled ‘Unsettled culture: the Algerian afterlives of the children of the pieds-noirs in The Last Life (Messud, 1999)’ as part of a seminar on ‘Cultures of Settlement and Unsettlement.’

And in a few weeks, Aedín ní Loingsigh will be giving a paper entitled ‘Mis/trusting Narratives of Undocumented Migrancy’ as part of the ninth annual Liverpool Travel Seminar (Mobilities and Place) at Liverpool John Moores University, in collaboration with the University of Liverpool and Liverpool Hope University.
