Bath Spa University is proposing to hold a 2-day Conference on Friday, 22nd and Saturday, 23rd October 2011, on the role of the spa as an international institution. We welcome research on all aspects of spas, to embrace cosmopolitanism and culture in the widest sense, discourse and the transmission of ideas, including:
• Political, social and economic • Empire and colonialism • Religion, gender and class • Medical and scientific
• The arts – music, literature, art and architecture • Fashion and design
Papers of 15-minute duration are invited from post-graduate researchers. Abstracts need to be approximately 200 words.
In addition, proposals are welcomed from potential panel members, for an inter-disciplinary discussion on aspects of spa culture and cosmopolitanism. Proposals should comprise of a statement of no more than 200 words.
An alternative opportunity exists for newer postgraduate researchers, independent researchers or those unable to submit a full paper, to display a poster outlining an aspect of spa history and culture, and take part in a short presentation on the posters. Initial proposals for this need only submit the proposed title.
Deadline for CFP and proposals: 29th April 2011
Contact details, abstracts and proposals for the above should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org
