The Modern Greek Section of the University of Cambridge and the Society for Modern Greek Studies are very happy to announce that this conference will take place at Selwyn College on Friday April 12th 2013. It will examine the work of British women novelists who have found their inspiration and subject matter in Greece, as well as novels by Greek women writers who have engaged with British settings and subjects. The authors to be discussed range from Rose Macaulay and Virginia Woolf to Victoria Hislop and Sofka Zinovieff on the British side; on the Greek side we shall engage with the work of Angela Dimitrakaki, Soti Triantafyllou and a number of other contemporary authors. We believe there is a rich vein of cultural interactions which have not been specifically examined and this conference will therefore be breaking new ground.

This talk is part of the Greece in British Women's Writing 1913-2013 series.
