Events in February

A couple of events at the Lit & Phil this month will appeal to those of us interested in places and spaces. On the 22nd Natasha Vall of Teeside University will examine how, after 1945, the North East struggled to create cultural policies which would support its vernacular culture. Then on the 29th a number of creative writing staff from Northumbria University will read from their work, including Ian Davidson and Michael Cawood Green whose rich works explore issues of space and location (see: for more information).

Some other snippets: the London Review of Books has some excellent articles this month, including Jeremy Harding's discussion of European borders and John Burnside's moving recollection of his time in the Arctic Circle (

We'll see you again towards the end of this month (date tbc) for a session on Derrida, hospitality and (believe it or not) Robin Hood.
