READING  Toni Morrison's Beloved 

In partnership with Literature Cambridge


Join us for an intensive Study Day on Toni Morrison’s great novel, Beloved, a powerful account of the lives of African-American people at the end of the period of slavery.

Beloved is one of the most important American novels of the late twentieth century. It is a complex tale of memory and trauma; a modern ghost story about the psychological consequences of slavery on a family, a people, and a nation. 

There will be two lectures by Cambridge scholars, and we end with a round-table seminar.



Kasia Boddy is a Fellow of Fitzwilliam College and a Lecturer in English at the University of Cambridge. She teaches a wide range of literature post-1900, with a particular interest in short fiction and in the American novel.
