Is this for you?

Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) was one of the twentieth century’s most innovative and most controversial avant-garde painters, writers, and theorists. This conference will mark the 60th anniversary of Lewis's death and is intended to be a scholarly celebration of his work. The conference will include presentations from modernist scholars and an editing symposium with contributions from editors working on the Complete Critical Edition of Lewis's writings, which has been commissioned by Oxford University Press.
