The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queen’s University Belfast is hosting a major international conference to honour Seamus Heaney from 10th-13th April 2014. ‘Seamus Heaney: a Conference and Commemoration’ will coincide with Seamus’s 75th birthday and the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Centre. The conference will be a celebration of Seamus’s work, and will provide an opportunity for an extended discussion both of his contribution to literature, and of his legacy for future generations of poets, critics and general readers.
As plans for the conference are confirmed, details will be published here. The conference website will contain information on registration, accommodation, speakers and the programme of events, so remember to visit the website regularly for updates.
