Wednesday 27 June 2012

The three-day conference jointly organised by the Ingeborg Bachmann Centre for Austrian Literature at the IGRS, the Austrian Cultural Forum, the Austrian Embassy in London, the Centre for Anglo-German Cultural Relations at Queen Mary, University of London, the Leo Baeck Institute London, and the Stefan Zweig Centre, Salzburg, in partnership with the British Library, inspired an article by Clive Davis in the Sunday Times on 10 June 2012. The first major conference on the author since 1981, the event aimed to generate a renaissance in public interest and academic research. The writer’s work has been widely translated and already numbers several devotees, including Clive James and Roy Hodgson.
