The Centre hosts workshops, seminars, conferences and public lectures, including an Annual Lecture, to address matters of interest to comparative literature in its broadest sense.

We are delighted that Marina Warner has agreed to give our inaugural Centre lecture in 2021. We shall publish more details as the Covid19-related logistics become clearer.

A range of events are being planned in conjunction with theatres – notably our partner the Gate – museums and galleries, in the UK and abroad, as well as with the Borough of Lewisham, London Borough of Culture 2022.

Our members organize a wide range of events at Goldsmiths and beyond, in collaboration with a range of networks and societies (for example, LINKS, the London Intercollegiate Network for Comparative Studies; EAM, the European Network for Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies; MDRNOut of the Wings, the theatre collective of translators and theatre makers; the Carl Einstein-Gesellschaft / Societé Carl Einstein; and many more). 

All events and activities prioritize diversity and inclusivity, which is central to our ethos.

We pay special attention to the support of graduate students and early-career researchers.

In particular, as members of networks such as LINKS, CHASE, Mnemonics, and the Emerging Translators Network, we offer graduate and early-career training events.

Whenever possible, we make podcasts/webcasts and transcripts available after our events.
