Hi all!

We hope that you are enjoying this holiday break! Today, we are pleased to present you with another review of one of our events! This time, Maria Sledmere (whose poems you can find on the blog here and here) reviewed our Creative Writing Showcase with the Scottish Writers’ Centre for U.S. Studies Online.

Here’s a short excerpt:

The Transatlantic Literary Women Series is fast proving itself a popular network, with academics, creatives and locals alike getting involved in discovering the literary lives and works of transatlantic women. (…) A key strength of the series is its attention to both creative and critical responses to transatlantic interests.

You can read Maria’s review in its entirety here. Happy reading!

Review of the Transatlantic Modernisms Workshop in U.S. Studies Online

Hi all!

We hope you’re well. We are looking forward to seeing you at our events in April, but today, we’d like to share something a bit different with you. PhD student Kari Sund (University of Glasgow), who attended our Transatlantic Modernisms Workshop in February, has just written a review of the event, published in U.S. Studies Online. You can find the full text here. Here’s a sneak peek of her comments on the day:

A particular highlight of the programme was the Modernisms Workshop, an afternoon of papers dedicated to modernist female writers, and presented by esteemed female academics. Questions raised regarding American expatriate women and their often conflicted attitudes to homeland resonated with contemporary concerns, given the heightened awareness of Britain’s relationship to the rest of Europe and the United States following both the Brexit vote, and the presidential election of Donald Trump.

And the rest is on U.S. Online

Thanks to Kari for this lovely review!

The TLW Committee.
