CuSPP Seminar Series 2022

The ANU School of Literature Languages & Linguistics, along with the Cultures of Screen, Performance & Print Network present the 2022 CuSPP Seminar Series.

This year the series will be coordinated by Dr Russell Smith, Lecturer in Modernist Literature in SLLL.

Seimars will be run in person, 4:30-6:00pm on the fourth Thursday of each month in the AD Hope Building. We will present these sessions concurrently via zoom, for those who are not in Canberra, or in isolation, or otherwise unable to attend in person. Please note also that in-person sessions may be cancelled at short notice, but that where possible we will go ahead via zoom only.
