A conference on the novel will be held at Sussex University on April 13th-14th 2007. The core purpose of the conference is to explore the contemporary status of the novel within the fields of literary theory, history and philosophy. We aim to explore the question: is a theory of the novel necessary.
We are eager to hear from those working on the problems faced when looking at relations between cultural forms and history, and relations between cultural forms and identity. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary, trans-cultural approaches and would, therefore, welcome contributions from the fields of the humanities in general, cultural studies and social and political thought.
