The conference will examine the legacy of George Eliot alongside trends in contemporary critical work, bringing together scholars from around the world to mark the bicentenary of her birth.

The organisers are currently inviting proposals for papers and for 3-4 person panels on any subject relating to Eliot and her work, her influence on and relationships with her contemporaries, and the critical and cultural effects of her writing.

On the Wednesday night there will be presentation by Cane Productions of work they are preparing for a musical  Mill on the Floss.

From lunchtime on Friday there will be an option for a tour of George Eliot Country, visiting Arbury Hall and South Farm, her birthplace, Chilvers Coton church where she was baptised and where her parents and brother are buried, and Griff House, where she lived for the first 21 years of her life.
