The 2nd International Alasdair Gray Conference – Glasgow, 16-17 June 2022

Call for Papers Announced!

Registrations Open!

MAKING IMAGINED OBJECTS – ACROSS SPACE AND FORM

This is going to be a two-day, interdisciplinary gathering held in Glasgow in the summer of 2022. The theme is ‘Across Space & Form’. Keynote Speakers are the internationally acclaimed novelist, short story writer and longtime Gray supporter ALI SMITH as well as the Exhibitions Director at the Glasgow School of Art, JENNY BROWNRIGG. Tickets for the whole two days of the conference, including Keynotes, coffee, catering and social programme are £50/25.

Here is Rodge’s introductory statement from the website set up for the conference on the University of Strathclyde website – https://www.strath.ac.uk/humanities/schoolofhumanities/english/makingimaginedobjectsthe2ndinternationalalasdairgrayconference/

The University of Strathclyde, the University of Glasgow and the Alasdair Gray Archive, in partnership with the Glasgow School of Art, the University of Western Brittany (HCTI), Aix-Marseille Unversite (LERMA), Edge Hill University, the University of Lausanne and the Tannahill Fund for the Furtherance of Scottish Literature, are pleased to invite you to the 2nd International Alasdair Gray Conference. The conference will take place from 16th to 17th of June 2022 at the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow.

This two-day interdisciplinary conference will examine the nature, value and legacy of Alasdair Gray’s artistic output, considering his literary work and his visual practice, and the relationship between the two in Gray’s oeuvre. The conference is entitled “Making Imagined Objects” in tribute to Gray’s own repeated and modest claim that he was a “maker of imagined objects”.

This is the second International Alasdair Gray Conference. The first one, convened by Professor Camille Manfredi, took place in Brest in 2012 and resulted in the critical book, Alasdair Gray: Ink for Worlds (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014), which Gray himself contributed to. This second Alasdair Gray Conference, with some of the same organisers involved, intends to be its continuation a decade later, expanding towards an even greater validation of Alasdair Gray’s plurality of forms.

We look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow, a profoundly Alasdair Gray city.

Dr Rodge Glass
Chair of the Conference Committee
