Critical Orwell: an online conference
- Online - a zoom link will be sent to you following registration
- Tuesday 12 April (00:00) - Thursday 14 April 2022 (00:00)
The theme of Critical Orwell: an online conference is how Orwell is critical and in crisis: how Orwell’s views and work matter; how Orwell operated as a judge and fault-finder, and occasionally as a pessimist; and how Orwell is a figure whose prejudices raise important questions about his canonical status in Anglo-American culture and beyond. How and why is Orwell critical now?
