The Matter of the North: Sarah Hall’s Uplandish Fiction
Thu, October 15 @ 5.00 pm – 6.00 pm
The School of Humanities and the English Literature programme are proud to present this year’s annual Words Matter lecture.
Join Dr Alexander Beaumont, Senior Lecturer in Literature and Politics at York St John University, as he examines the recent growth in fiction from and about Northern England. Focussing on the work of Sarah Hall, one of the most remarkable of the new northern writers, this talk will explore the position of ‘the North’ within the English national imaginary and the British state.
