The International Anthony Burgess Foundation invites proposals for papers
for its 3rd Symposium which will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from
27th-30th July, 2009. The theme of the conference is Conflict, Dialogue and
Resolution, a theme which can be explored in any aspect of Burgess’s work
in Literature, Music, Drama, Film and Theory or Journalism. The proposals
should be for papers between 20-30 minutes when they are delivered. The
papers may focus upon the postcolonial aspects of Burgess’s work, but this
is not a requirement. Papers are welcomed on any aspect of Burgess’s work
which is relevant to the theme.

Seminar: “Literary Spaces and Questions of Genre”
Seminar Co-chairs: Barish Ali and Caroline Hagood

~~~

space? How are these new spaces -- literal and figurative -- represented in
contemporary literature, theory, and philosophy? What is the space that the
text occupies? How are these texts distributed?
