George Eliot 2019: An International Bicenteniary Conference. College Court, Leicester, 17-19 July 2019

Title

George Eliot 2019: An International Bicenteniary Conference. College Court, Leicester, 17-19 July 2019

Description

Read George Eliot at your own risk. She is not a writer of pithy quotations for your tote bag or feel-good narratives to assuage the ego. George Eliot prepares us to lead
other kinds of life, to inhabit other kinds of minds and bodies. She takes her readers
seriously.
On 17–19 July at the University of Leicester, 140 delegates gathered together
to take Eliot seriously and to commemorate the bicentenary of her birth. I
travelled to Leicester from the US as one of around 100 speakers from across
the world.
