English taster: What role does the idea of a cultural 'renaissance' play within twentieth-century literature? – Professor Morag Shiach
This session will look at three examples of moments when artists and writers worked to create a cultural 'renaissance'. These three moments are the Irish Literary Renaissance (1890s to 1920s); the Harlem Renaissance (1910s-1930s), and the Scottish Renaissance (1920s to 1950s). The session will introduce some of the key figures and ideas within each of these movements and look at examples of their literary writings.
