The Gaskell Society Conference 2022

Friday 8 July, 2022 - Monday 11 July, 2022

The Gaskell Society committee has taken the difficult decision to postpone Conference until 2022. Although there is a possibility that we could have gone ahead with Conference for 2021, we felt we couldn’t run the risk of asking members to commit deposits while there was any chance that it would have to be cancelled. We are all sad about this but I’m sure it’s the right decision.

So – the new dates are – 8th – 11th JULY 2022 – please do save the dates.

We are still planning to hold our Conference in Caernarfon, as North Wales was a place of such significance in Elizabeth Gaskell’s life. And the theme will be the same – The Women Writers who influenced Elizabeth Gaskell and the Women Writers whom she went on to influence. A fascinating subject though, as you can see, we’re still searching for a catchy title!
