"Fin de Siècle" is an interdisciplinary seminar series based at the University of Oxford, which aims to develop fresh perspectives on literature, society, and the arts in England between 1870 and 1920. In the four years since its inception, the series has provided a vibrant forum for both graduates and established academics, hosting presentations on subjects as diverse as publishing and the Wilde trials, the creation of the New Woman, detective fiction, and socialism and the occult. "Fin de Siècle" has attracted the notice of a broad community of researchers both within and outside Oxford, who value its atmosphere of rigorous scholarly discussion.
We are currently inviting papers for the 2004-5 academic year. Papers may vary in length between thirty minutes and one hour. If you would like to present your work, be included on the "Fin de Siècle" mailing list, or make further enquiries, please contact Anna Vaninskaya at the address below.
Proposals (of no more than 200 words) must be received by 1 July, 2004.
