his symposium will explore the ways in which comics respond to the cultural and historical world around them. Taking a new approach to adaptation, it investigates how comics creators adapt and transform literary texts as well as how history and (auto)biography are translated into the comics medium. In addition to these topics, we will be discussing the political aspects of such adaptations focussing not only on the use of the medium to advance specific political perspectives but also on the political implications of adaptation as a process.

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.
