‘Spectacular Orientalism’ Conference postponed

The conference Spectacular Orientalism in Early Modern Europe (1529-1683), planned for 24-25 February 2022, has been postponed to 8-9 June 2022, due to the renewed strike action by Goldsmiths staff against a large number of redundancies and restructuring imposed by the College’s senior management, which would directly affect the staff in comparative literature and translation studies and in the CCL, as well as many other staff in the Departments of English & Creative Writing and of History and across the College.

This article, published last Autumn, this page by the Goldsmiths University and College Union and this article by Goldsmiths’ Collective Change give additional context and information.

We thank our speakers for agreeing to postpone the conference, and our members and audience for your patience and your support of the CCL.

Lucia Boldrini, CCL Director, and Marie-Claude Canova-Green, Deputy Director and organiser of the postponed event
