'Archives and afterlife' - The 7th Annual Iris Murdoch Conference

Celebrating ten years since the opening of the Iris Murdoch Archives and the inauguration of the Centre for Iris Murdoch Studies, the Seventh International Conference on Iris Murdoch will showcase published and on-going research that has been informed by material in our archives.

Plenary speakers will include Professor Timothy Chappell from the Open University and Anne Rowe and Avril Horner, who will discuss their forthcoming Living on Paper: Selected Letters from Iris Murdoch 1934-1995.

The conference will run concurrently with an Exhibition at Kingston Museum: 'Iris Murdoch and Harry Weinberger: Writer Meets Painter' which will run between 5-27 September.

A selection of material from 'Iris Murdoch and Philippa Foot: An Arc of Friendship', an exhibition that ran at Kingston Museum in May 2013, will also be on display at the University.

The Murdoch Archives will be open for the duration of the conference. A London walk will be organised for Sunday 14 September.
