Saturday 16 October 2010, 10.00AM to 6.00pm
Here, bearing the name of the historic city, ancient second capital of England, is this convincing evidence of modern skill, modern and humane architectural intelligence, and modern resources, seeming, on its beautifully landscaped site, to grow in its modernity out of the old Hall, the old lakeside lawns and gardens and the old timbered grounds. It is easy to see that … the idea of the university as I have been insisting on it isn’t merely mine.
F. R. Leavis, Nor Shall my Sword (1972), p. 193 – dedicated “To the York students who gave me a new Blake with clean margins to write in.”
10 .00: Registration & coffee
10.30: Welcome by Professor David Attwell, Head of the Department of English and Related literature; followed by Professor John Roe on the F. R. Leavis Fund, for student bursaries (the legacy of the former F. R. Leavis Lectureship Trust Fund established at Cambridge).
1.00: Buffet lunch - resume at 1.50 pm.
6 pm: Closing remarks.
Most talks will last for approximately 15-30 minutes, with as much time as possible allowed for questions and discussion. The day is intended to stimulate discussion and exchange in an informal atmosphere, so it is as much about participation and dialogue as about listening.
Refreshments and buffet lunch will be provided.
