About the Speakers:
James Wilkes is a poet and writer. His most recent poetry publications are Reviews (Burner Veer, 2009) and Weather A System (Penned in the Margins, 2009). He has collaborated on several projects with the artists Townley and Bradley, including a commission for Nightjar, a programme of temporary nocturnal artworks in Cambridge. In 2008-9 he wrote and produced Interior Traces, a live radio drama exploring the effects of brain imaging on society, funded by the Wellcome Trust. Interior Traces was performed at the Science Museum's Dana Centre, the Wellcome Collection, and the Cheltenham Science Festival, and a national tour. He is studying for a PhD in Humanities and Cultural Studies at the London Consortium, where he is researching the landscape of the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.
Andrew Duncan was born in 1956 and brought up in the Midlands. He worked as a labourer (in England and Germany) after leaving school, and subsequently as a project planner with a telecoms manufacturer (1978–87), and as a programmer for the Stock Exchange (1988–91). He now works in the Civil Service and is based in Nottingham. He has been publishing poetry since his Cambridge days in the late 70s, including In a German Hotel, Anxiety Before Entering a Room, Sound Surface, Surveillance and Compliance. He is one of the editors of Angel Exhaust and has translated a lot of modern German poetry. He has published a good deal of literary criticism in recent years, above all The Failure of Conservatism in Modern British Poetry (Salt); Centre and Periphery in Modern British Poetry (Liverpool UP), Origins of the Underground: The Occlusion of British Poetry, 1932–77 (Salt), as well as The Council of Heresy (Shearsman) and The Long 1950s (Shearsman).
