After thirty years at UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy, Professor Paul Eggert has taken up the Martin J. Svaglic Endowed Chair in Textual Studies at Loyola University in Chicago. This symposium celebrates his contribution to the fields of nineteenth-century Australian literary studies, editorial theories of the text and scholarly editing, digital textuality and the digital humanities, museology and history of the book, and studies on D.H. Lawrence and Joseph Conrad.
This will be a day of scholarship and reminiscence, lively debate and long memories, to reflect Paul’s expansive interests, productive networks and collegial collaboration across the decades.
Speakers will address topics congruent with Paul’s broad interests and bring highlights of working with Paul to share with an appreciative audience, in formal and informal ways.
