10th Jul 2006 to 12th Jul 2006 AcademicChanging Perceptions of the Public SphereChanging Perceptions of the Public Sphere is a two-year research collaboration between Rice University, represented by the School of Humanities and the Center for European Studies, and the University of Cambridge (England), represented by the Center for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and the Department of German. The research project seeks to examine the changes the "public sphere" has undergone as a conceptual model and as a discursive formation of actual political culture. Given the new geographies of power that have emerged over the last twenty years or so in the context of globalization, it is more than timely to investigate the public sphere from an interdisciplinary perspective that brings together scholars from a range of different fields, such as history, literary studies, international relations, philosophy, and cultural geography (Adrian House Seminar Room). Registration Details.

She is also the author of Like (1997); Other Stories and Other Stories (1999); Hotel World (2001), which was shortlisted for both the Orange Prize and the Booker Prize in 2001 and won the Encore Award, the East England Arts Award of the Year and the Scottish Arts Council Book of the Year Award in 2002; and The Whole Stories and Other Stories (2003). Her most recent novel, The Accidental (2005), won the Whitbread Novel of the Year Award, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and has recently been longlisted for the Orange Prize.

The Icarus Girl, described by The Sunday Times as 'a highly auspicious fictional debut' and by The Telegraph as 'an astonishing achievement', has recently appeared in paperback. Helen and Ali will consider (among other things) the difference between 'feminine' and 'masculine' styles of writing, whether women's fiction can cross cultural boundaries in ways that men's fiction cannot, whether madness is subversive and to any extent part of being female, and how much literary constructs of gender matter anyway (Old Combination Room).
