Children in Troubled Worlds Conference 2008

‘between the words’

The eighth Children in Troubled Worlds’ conference was a unique experience. Two Oxford based poets, Tom Paulin and Bernard O’Donoghue offered a poetry masterclass,exploring the evocation of meaning in and between words in poetry.

Pamela Sorensen presented a paper on exploring aspects of learning from Dr Meltzer in person and in his writing with reference to the film The Story of the Weeping Camel.  Attendees were encouraged to view this film before the conference. Additional speakers included Meg Harris Williams, writer, artist, and psychoanalytic thinker, Rosemary Duffy and Gerry Byrne.

Conference chair: Margaret Rustin.
