Angela Carter for the twenty first century: fireworks and strange worlds

Cambridge University Institute for Continuing Education, Madingley Hall  June 22-24 2018

Gina Wisker, Marie Mulvey Roberts- tutors ; Paulina Palmer guest talk. This course offers the opportunity for us to re-explore and celebrate the work of the influential writer Angela Carter. We will use new scholarship, new biographical information, and established passions  for her work to consider her rewriting of fairytale (The Bloody Chamber); energising the Gothic (The Magic Toyshop, Nights at the Circus); surrealism and art (The Holy Family Album and the exhibition Strange Worlds );  her contributions to  twenty and twenty first century writing, popular culture, film (The Company of Wolves), scifi and feminism (The Passion of New Eve, Wise Children). It builds on the ground breaking Jan 2017 conference Fireworks (www.getangelacarter.com)   and offers the chance for us to ignite and  reignite new fascinations with her work and its influence.
