Symposium on Literature and Business: Money making in Victorian and contemporary writing
Date and time: Thursday 19th June 2014, 9-11am
Venue: Chandler Room, Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool
This innovative symposium will explore the contrast between literary representations of business issues in the 19th century, and the way in which those issues have been presented recently (including thoughts on the difference the recent recession has made). The event will be a lively discussion looking at representations of business in all forms of modern media and contrasting it with the 19th century. There will be three panellists at the event, Prof Andrew Popp, Prof Robert Hewison and Dr Nicholas Shrimpton, which will be chaired by Prof Dinah Birch. The discussions will close with a networking opportunity and refreshments.
This symposium is part of the International Business Festival organised by the Management School. The event is free but booking is essential.
