The Symposium proper will begin at the Marjorie Barclay Theatre, Otago Museum at 9.00 am on Friday 28. Professor Tony Ballantyne will begin proceedings, and after morning tea, Dr. Ingrid Horrocks of Massey University will deliver a plenary paper entitled: ‘Writing Place: A Case for Creative Nonfiction’. Nicky Page, Director of Dunedin’s UNESCO City of Literature programme will also be present.
Delightfully, there is no charge to attend the Symposium. This is due to the kind support from the Department of English and Linguistics, the Division of the Humanities, and the Centre for Research on Colonial Cultures. Participants will need to bring or buy their own lunch. We will provide a reception following the evening lecture, and morning and afternoon tea.
