Sensory Modernism(s)#2 is a two-day interdisciplinary conference due to be held at the University of Leeds. The event, organised by the university’s Sensory Modernisms research group, follows the highly successful inaugural conference event held earlier this year.

The conference will seek to address the interrelationship of modernism with sensory perception.

Poetry and the Senses Workshop (11 December)
As part of the conference, Douglas Caster Cultural Fellow Helen Mort will run a one hour creative writing workshop with prompts and exercises designed to get you thinking differently about how the senses can be used in poetry. No previous creative writing experience is necessary, just a notebook and pen!
