The J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice invites you to a masterclass with Professor Elleke Boehmer (Oxford)
Thursday 23 February
2.00 pm – 4.30 pm
Napier Building, Room 618
RSVP to Rita Horanyi by 21 February
World-renowned Coetzee scholar and award-winning novelist, Professor Elleke Boehmer (Oxford), will examine how we conceptualise the relationship between writing and criticism in the works of writers who practice both. In times when more creative writers than ever before are working in academic departments of literature, but at the same time writers and critics are distancing themselves from the notion of ‘critique’, has this relationship become closer or simply more ambiguous? And is the ambiguity in any way stimulating for the core work that makes us writers?
