Michelle Kelly, Departmental Lecturer in World Literatures in English, at the University of Oxford, will discuss the relationship between J. M. Coetzee’s autobiographical writings and his career-long engagements with confessional forms in his fiction. The Life-Writing Lunch is a termly lunchtime seminar series, in which practising auto/biographers discuss their work in an informal, friendly setting, over a buffet sandwich lunch. There is no charge, but you must register well in advance, as these seminars often sell out.
