NOW SOLD OUT Seamus Heaney 'in conversation' with Alasdair Macrae.

14 Sep ‘12

6.30PM - 7.45PM

Venue: The Logie Lecture Theatre, University of Stirling

In association with the Royal Society of Literature, the University of Stirling is delighted to welcome to the campus, Nobel Laureate and University of Stirling Honorary Graduate Seamus Heaney.  On this occasion, he will be 'in conversation' with Alasdair Macrae, literary critic and retired senior lecturer at the University.

Seamus Heaney will reflect on the creative tensions that have informed his life and work - the tension between speech and silence that he experienced as a child, between poetic freedom and political responsibility, and between succumbing to and resisting the pressures of celebrity.  The conversation, which will be introduced by Professor Gerry McCormac, Principal of the University of Stirling and during which Heaney will read from his work, marks the official opening of the School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Stirling.

We are grateful to the Derek Hill Foundation for their generous support of this event.
