Event description

Calling All Agents: McCarthy symposium

'Calling All Agents: A symposium on the work of Tom McCarthy' is the first academic symposium on the work of British novelist Tom McCarthy. This event will feature papers on McCarthy's three novels, Remainder (2005), Men in Space (2007) and C (2010), as well as his role as General Secretary of the International Necronautical Society, and his relationship with the Tintin series. The day will conclude with a reading by and Q&A session with McCarthy.

The evening before the symposium, there will be a wine reception hosted by Gylphi Press to launch their 'Contemporary Writers' series and Sara Dillon's 'David Mitchell: Critical Essays'.  This evening will conclude with a screening of the McCarthy-scripted film, Double Take (2009), in the Birkbeck Cinema.

The symposium on the Saturday (23 July) will take place in Malet Street B35.
