Program Description:

This interdisciplinary conference on the work of the modernist poet and artist David Jones (1895-1974) seeks to explore Jones's cultural theory, and how his creative works confront the challenges of modern culture. Along with presentations by Jones experts from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, the conference will feature special events, such as an exhibition of Jones's major wood and copper engravings from the 1920's, the screening of a new feature length documentary on his life during the interwar period, and a programmed reading of his poetic works with musical interludes by the Perry Conticchio Quartet.
