Study Group for Literature of the Twentieth Century and Beyond
The Twentieth-Century Study Group meets annually for a two-day conference at Mansfield College, Oxford in September. In 2000, the study group devoted its meeting at Mansfield College to 'exile and emigration'. In 2001 there was a symposium on the Booker Prize in Bristol in July. In 2002, a conference held in Oxford was devoted to Contemporary Women's Writing. The 2003 conference was devoted to the theme of Literature and Nation. In 2004 the conference addressed 'Chekhov's Legacy in Russian Culture of the 20th century and beyond', to mark the centenary of Chekhov's death. In 2006 the meeting was devoted to poetry and in 2007 it chose as theme "The Writer as Critic". In 2008 the conference was devoted to contemporary literature.
The group is currently organised by Dr Rolf Hellebust of the Dept of Russian & Slavonic Studies at the University of Nottingham.
