Friday 18th July 2014
We are delighted to announce the programme for the May Sinclair Society Symposium. We had an overwhelming response to our call for papers, and the resultant programme reflects, we think, the wealth and breadth of current Sinclair research. We hope you will join us for what looks set to be an exciting and interesting day!
The symposium is a free event, but we ask that all delegates register their attendance by the 27th of June, so we can confirm catering numbers.
The day after the conference (Saturday 19th July) there will be a conference trip to Swaledale Museum, and a guided walk around Swaledale with curator Helen Clifford. The walk will take in Sinclair’s home, the houses on which she based Mary Olivier’s and Dr Rowcliffe’s homes, and some of her habitual walks – all with passages from the books to hand. There will be a nominal cost to this trip, which will include minibus hire, refreshments, and a donation towards the cost of the guided walk. This will be confirmed once numbers are known, but is not expected to be more than £20.
If you would like to join us on the walk, please indicate this on your registration form.
The symposium will be held at Sheffield Hallam University, The Cantor Building, Room 9020a. For campus maps and further information about Sheffield Hallam’s campus, see the visitors’ guide.
