The Society arose from the work initiated by the former Centre for Leavis Studies, which had its origins in the conference, Re-reading Leavis, held at Downing College Cambridge in September 2003, and in surrounding discussions. The Centre organised further meetings (see 'News and Events'), out of which work the decision to form the Society developed.
