Center for Conrad Studies

The Center for Conrad Studies, in conjunction with the University Libraries' Department of Special Collections, includes virtually all the first and later book editions of Conrad as well as copies of magazine printings and of Conrad's extant manuscripts, typescripts, and proofs. Part of Kent State's Institute for Bibliography & Editing, it supports the Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad and two associated projects. Conrad (1857-1924) was one of the twentieth century's most important writers. Polish by birth, he wrote in his third language, English, and became popular at the beginning of WWI. His stories have had an immense influence of writers of fiction everywhere.
