Lectures and seminars

The Centre’s lecture and research seminar series provide a forum in which colleagues from the University of Kent and from other universities in the UK and abroad can present aspects of their current research in the field of modern European literature.


The Centre hosts regular conferences, the most recent being Métamorphoses d’Apollinaire’ which took place 22-23 October 2018. Our Conferences page has details of events which have taken place in recent years, as well as information about upcoming conferences.
