New Generation to Next Generation 2014: Three Decades of British and Irish Poetry
This two-day conference, organized by the Institute of English Studies and Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre in collaboration with the Poetry Book Society, looks back at twenty years of New and Next Generation Poets. Its aim is to explore the legacy and impact of the scheme, but also use it as a focus to think more generally about contemporary poetry.
With panels discussing a wide range of poets, talks about the publishing and reviewing of contemporary poetry, and a poetry reading by Nick Drake and Helen Mort, this event offers a chance to consider the state and direction of British and Irish poetry now. The keynote address will be by Dr David Wheatley (University of Aberdeen), author of Contemporary British Poetry, and also includes a free public event on Friday evening with a reading and discussion by a 'cross-generational' panel of poets: Ian Duhig, Patience Agbabi, and Hannah Lowe.
