Twenty-First Century Perspectives on Kazuo Ishiguro – an international conference

The early twenty-first-century presents us with a host of pressing contexts and challenges, from concerns about climate change and technological innovation to diversity issues and shifts in geopolitical power. To what extent does Ishiguro’s writing anticipate and comment on the early twenty-first century Zeitgeist? Surely, The Remains of the Day anticipates Brexit, Never Let Me Go argues against posthumanism, whilst The Buried Giant comments on our distracted, amnesic times. This conference invites critical and creative responses that connect Ishiguro’s work in new ways and/or situate it in new contexts.

Date: 1 February 2020 from 9.00am to 6.00pm
Venue: Chancellor’s Hall, City Campus, Wulfruna Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1LY
