The Brontë Society is delighted to announce that it is hosting a conference to celebrate the life and work of Anne Brontë in her bicentenary year. The conference, ‘I wished to tell the truth’: Anne Brontë at 200 will take place at the Crown Spa Hotel, Scarborough, UK, 4 -6 September 2020, and presents an ideal opportunity to challenge the long-held perception that the youngest Brontë sibling was the least talented, and lacked the genius of her sisters. With Anne Brontë’s marginalisation in mind, potential topics to be explored could include, but are not limited to, the following:

The novel’s “hyperadaptability” in visual form, to adopt Dennis Perry’s term, extends to a wide range of modes.

“Doing southern studies is unmasking and refusing the binary thinking--‘North’/‘South,’ nation/South, First World/Third World, self/other--that postcolonial studies has taught us is the most damaging rhetorical structure of empire. Doing southern studies is thinking geographically, thinking historically, thinking relationally, thinking about power, thinking about justice, thinking back.”             --Scott Romaine & Jennifer Rae Greeson

Ghosts and Memory

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 12, 2019

I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.

The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to:
