How does literature register Britain’s post-war welfare capitalism? What critiques of British state welfare have been put forward by writers across genres in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries? Can these broad questions be systematised into a coherent idea of ‘Welfare State Literature’? Centred on an invited lecture from Professor Michael Gardiner on Thatcher and the post-war consensus, this half-day workshop is dedicated to beginning a conversation on British Welfare State culture at a crucial moment of neoliberal reorganisation. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The event is free and includes lunch and refreshments. For catering purposes please register your intention to attend using this link www.nottingham.ac.uk/english/rsvp
