Our interactive research event is conceived as a performance and exercise in critical self-reflection in its own right. The academic papers examine literary authors’ critical engagement with ideas of authority in both the text and its hyperlinked context. They will be delivered alongside conversation papers with creative practitioners. A workshop that further explores the position of authors and critics in society will stimulate further thought on how creative critical self-reflection might also inform scholarly practice. A ‘how-to’ session that considers co-authorship concludes the event with a practical look at models of interdisciplinary collaboration in academic publishing.
