The international David Mitchell Conference 2017 was held at the School of English in the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland, on Saturday 3rd June 2017. The day sold out nearly three months in advance, and brought together twenty speakers from ten countries to discuss the works of British author David Mitchell, with a reading by the author and a visit to see his rare works held in the university’s Special Collections.

The interdisciplinary event attracted national media attention (see ‘Arts News: David Mitchell in St Andrews‘), and as well as literature experts, it was attended by philosophers, psychologists, physicists, a cognitive neuroscientist, a medical doctor and a filmmaker, who all came together to offer their unique perspectives on the author’s works. See the Schedule and Speakers pages to learn more about the day, and the University of St Andrews press release on the event.
