Keynote Lecturer: Professor Jeremy Tambling (University of Manchester)
This one-day graduate conference is the second joint-event held by the London Modernism Seminar, the Northern Modernism Seminar and the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies in collaboration with the British Association of Modernist Studies.
Proposals are invited from on-course PhD students at British universities for short (ten-minute) research papers. The conference aims to engage participants in the three modernist seminars as well as students who are new to modernist studies in dialogues that will develop and expand our scholarly knowledge. We hope to put together an interdisciplinary programme that will reflect the full diversity of work in modernist studies.
Building on the impressive range of the New Work in Modernist Studies events in 2010 and 2011, we encourage presenters to consider how modernist modes and methodologies can be deployed in broad modes of analysis, offering new directions for modernist scholarship. We hope participants will be interested in extending the parameters of modernist studies, for example in considering the development of modernist forms in a world literary space characterized by transnational movements and/or including diverse or unexpected fields and materials (often non-metropolitan). We welcome papers from graduates working on all modernist topics.
The cost of the conference will be £10 (or £5 for BAMS members) and include lunch, tea and coffee, and a Christmas drinks reception.
Please send proposals (300 words), with a short biography (50 words including details of your year of study) by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by November 12th. We will inform you whether your abstract has been accepted by November 16th.
