Travelling to Liège



Strange Fruit, Caryl Phillips's first play, came out twenty-five years ago, in 1981. This publication marked the beginning of an impressive body of writing which so far includes eight award-winning novels, three volumes of essays, two anthologies, two screenplays and three other stage plays, as well as several unpublished dramatic pieces and countless press articles.

To celebrate this anniversary the CEREP (Centre d'enseignement et de recherche en études post-coloniales) of the University of Liège (Belgium) is organizing a two-day conference on 1st and 2nd December 2006. Caryl Phillips himself will be present and will give a keynote address at the end of the symposium.
