Conference

Sorry for an unannounced disappearance! I’ve been in London since Thursday attending The Space Between conference, which was absolutely wonderful (albeit extremely hot – I had to make a lunchtime trip to buy t-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops as I couldn’t face the idea of wearing conference clothes in the evenings). Such lovely, fascinating people, and easily my favourite bit of academia – and the bit I can cling onto!

I gave a paper called ‘Let Other Pens Treat of Sex’: Metamorphosis, Marriage, and the Middlebrow, talking about David Garnett’s Lady Into Fox and Ronald Fraser’s Flower Phantoms in relation to changing ideas about women’s sexuality in 1920s marriage – and it was very well received, I’m pleased to say.

I also bought a fair few books… will report back on those soon!

    Oh my. Your paper sounds of academia. You're truly a member of the intelligentsia, Simon, flip-flops notwithstanding.

    Sounds fascinating, must investigate further! And look forward to learning of your buys, and from where perhaps?

    Sounds like a fascinating paper. Wish I could have heard it.
    And yes, the heat in London has been oppressive!
