Claire Bowditch joins Elaine Hobby at our Aphra Behn workshop

We are very fortunate that Dr Claire Bowditch is going to join Professor Elaine Hobby at our annual workshop to speak about their new research on Aphra Behn.  They are co-editing a new edition of the complete writings of Aphra Behn for Cambridge University Press.

The title of their keynote paper is ‘What is the place of Aphra Behn in Restoration Culture’, and the afternoon session at which delegates are invited to give 5 minutes papers will open up a discussion across disciplines and backwards and forwards in time.

A few spaces are still available.  Registration will close on the 29 April, so please contact us promptly to reserve a place.

We look forward to seeing you at what promises to be another great workshop!

UPDATE: The workshop is now full – thank you to everyone for such a great response. We are keeping a waiting list: if you would like your name to be added, please contact us using the information on our booking form.
