International Conference at the Department of English and American Studies, 19-21 January 2018, University of Potsdam (Campus Neues Palais), Germany


Raymond Williams was one of the most prolific and influential 20th century cultural theorists in Britain. His work influenced scholars all over the world and across the spectrum of humanities disciplines well-beyond Literary and Cultural Studies. This conference asks what Raymond Williams’ critical legacy has to offer for cultural and literary analysis today. We invite contributions from scholars within the humanities and social sciences that make use of cultural materialist concepts and methods in the tradition of Williams or critically investigate Williams’ work to set it in dialogue with other theory traditions and build on it.
