Royal Holloway contribution to Cape Town conference

Posted on 22/12/2011

Royal Holloway made a significant contribution to a conference recently held at the University of Cape Town. The conference was on ‘Joseph Conrad, Modernism and (Post) colonialism’, and three of the speakers had Royal Holloway connections. Professor Hampson from the English Department spoke on ‘The Paradox of Progress’; his research student, Andrew Glazzard, spoke on ‘Some Fictional Contexts for Conrad’s Alleged Racism in “Heart of Darkness”’; and a third paper was given by Kate Burling on Conrad as an ‘historian of the ages to come’. Kate graduated from Royal Holloway in the early 1980’s, and, after a career in journalism in Africa, is now starting a PhD at the University of Cape Town.
