Abstract

London has always inspired the production of literature, art music and film. In turn, there is critical interest in London’s cultural and literary production and the ways in which, for example, diasporic consciousness, urban development, architecture and space are formed and informed by writers, musicians and film makers. There are now established academic discourses on London’s literature that draw on Empire and the postcolonial, urban studies and psychoanalytical theory – discourses employed for the examination of texts from London’s earliest history to the present day.

The conference, ‘South of the River’, has its focus on the ‘bastard side of Old Father Thames’ (Angela Carter Wise Children, 1991) as a space for the imagination and aims to make visible the unique qualities of cultural productions and representations emanating from the sprawling diversity that exists south of the Thames and beyond into suburbia.

The proceedings will be published as a special issue of the Literary London Journal
