    Postgraduate Biography Conference: History, Mystery & Myth
    Saturday 14th November From 9.15 AM TO 8.00 PM
    Elizabeth Fry Building at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ

    Delegate registration is now open for the 2009 Postgraduate Biography
    Conference. This is a unique event bringing together critical and creative
    responses to recent trends in life writing, and promises to be a great
    forum
    for new researchers and writers to meet and share their ideas. Whilst the
    conference is chiefly aimed at current and recent postgraduates, anyone
    with
    an academic or professional interest in biography is welcome to attend.

    The day will commence with an introduction by Kathryn Hughes (BBC Radio 4’s
    Open Book, The Short Life and Long Times of Mrs Beeton) and conclude with
    an
    evening round table discussion featuring biographers DJ Taylor (Thackerary,
    Orwell: The Life), Lucasta Miller (The Bronte Myth), Jon Cook (Hazlitt in
    Love) and Helen Smith (Biographer’s Club prize winner 2006), who will
    discuss
    themes arising from the day’s four postgraduate presentation panels.

    Registration is essential and spaces are now limited. If you would like to
    attend please book using the form available on the conference website:

    The registration fee of £20 includes a buffet lunch and evening wine
    reception. On campus accommodation is available at an additional charge.

    For any additional questions or if you would like to receive a registration
    form via email, please write to: Biography@uea.ac.uk
