This year’s research symposium on the topic of “Biography, Autobiography and Memoirs” will take place on the evening of Thursday 14 November and all day Friday 15 November. We have a strong line-up of four panels during the day Friday and an exciting presentation by three practitioners of life writing on Thursday evening at the Public Library.
You can download the full programme here. And we will look forward to an inspiring series of talks from a wide variety of perspectives.
Thursday night: a panel of experts talking on autobiography, biography and memoirs at the Dunningham Room: Dr Paul Millar (Canterbury); Dr Philip Temple (Dunedin); and Dr Deborah Shepard (Auckland). Dr Tom McLean is moderator.
