Cancellation of Auto / Bio / Fiction seminar with Guido Mazzoni and Jarred McGinnis

We are sorry to announce that the Auto / Bio / Fiction seminar with Guido Mazzoni (“Like everyone else. Annie Ernaux’s The Years“) and Jarred McGinnis (“Alchemizing the self for fiction”), which was scheduled for Thursday 9 February 2023 at 5.30pm UTC, has had to be cancelled due to UCU strike action.

Guido Mazzoni will be rescheduled to a new event dedicated to Annie Ernaux in the next academic year.

Jarred McGinnis will be keynote speaker at a new Auto / Bio / Fiction event in June 2023, focused on auto- and biofictional creative writing.

Full details will be announced as soon as we have finalised them. Keep an eye on the Auto / Bio / Fiction page on our website!

The seminar on 9 March 2023, 5.30pm UTC, with Lorenzo Marchese and Julia Kritsikokas is not affected by the strike and should go ahead as normal. Please join us for that!

We apologise for the inconvenience and hope you understand that we cannot ask our speakers to cross (even virtual) picket lines.
