New Generation Thinkers: 3 – 4 pm with Julie Irigaray, Iona Murphy & Dorka Tamás
Three research students discuss their work on Sylvia Plath, in conversation with Kitty Shaw from the Sylvia Plath Society. Building on her essay in After Sylvia, Dr Dorka Tamás will speak about Plath’s engagement with the early modern witch-hunt and supernatural figures in the early modern plays, such as the witches in Macbeth and the magician in The Tempest. Julie Irirgaray will discuss Plath’s perception of the English, drawing on her current PhD research into Plath’s identity as an American living in England, and Iona Murphy will explore representations of disability and disability prejudice in The Bell Jar.
