This conference will emphasize a multidisciplinary study of Don Quixote in order
to bring fresh synergy around interpretations of the novel. Through conversations
between scholars of history, literature, political science, film, fine arts, theology,
and psychology we hope to invigorate Don Quixote as a man of our times. We
especially invite papers to explore the novel in a comparative context, its political
and social relevance, its utopian possibilities, and its commentaries for other disciplines.
Each participant will receive a $600 stipend to defray the costs of travel
and accommodation. We expect that the multidisciplinary focus will generate
new perspectives and lead to an edited volume publication.
Abstracts should not be longer than 500 words and should address the unique
contribution of your paper, your discipline or scholarly method, and your contact
information including email.
Please send a brief CV (maximum two pages) with your affiliation and relevant
Deadline for abstracts: October 15 at midnight to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
