About Us

Founded in 2012, Birkbeck's Centre for Contemporary Literature is a meeting place for numerous ongoing projects by academic staff, creative writers and graduate students. The Centre hosts conferences and symposia, readings and seminars on a range of contemporary writers – in prose fiction but also potentially in other forms and media. We are open to suggestions for future projects and events, including collaborations with other departments, writers and artists, and non-academic institutions – please use the form on our Contact Us page if you would like to get in touch with a proposed event or activity.
