Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Literature professor Robert Eaglestone explores the main themes, patterns and debates of contemporary fiction, covering genre, form, experimentalism, modernism, postmodernism, globalisation and terrorism, and the impact of technology. He examines how works reflect the world in which we live and the artistic concerns of writers and readers. Eaglestone is professor of contemporary literature and thought at Royal Holloway, University of London.
