May Sinclair Society

May SinclairThe May Sinclair Society was founded in July 2013 as a hub for modernist scholars and readers with an interest in Sinclair. In July 2014, Sheffield Hallam University hosted the first International Symposium of the May Sinclair Society, which was well-attended by academic scholars and members of Sinclair’s own family. The day-symposium was followed by a trip to Reeth in the Yorkshire Dales, where a walk taking in the settings for some of Sinclair’s novels was kindly hosted by Helen Clifford of the Swaledale Museum. Plans to publish critical editions of Sinclair’s works are underway.

We are always delighted to welcome new members. If you would like to be on the May Sinclair Society mailing list, please send us an email by clicking the ‘Contact Us’ link above.

  1. Very interested to learn about May Sinclair. I live in Reeth and my daughter won the Sinclair Essay prize at Reeth school for her essay about the river Swale In 1980. I have just learned from Helen in the Reeth museum that May lived in the village for 2mths of the yr to write. So excited to start reading her work.

    • Come and see the panel we have in the Swaledale Museum in Reeth on May Sinclair, and join us for Anne Henderson’s talk in the Museum on 12th August 2015 (7.30 pm), on May and Women’s Suffrage in Swaledale – preceded by a walk by both of us round May’s Reeth at 3pm, start in the Museum! (Between 2-3 pm we have a screening of pictures of our Textile Collection – so a busy day!). Perhaps we could include May in your International Rag Rug extravaganza in 2016?
