contact email: 
otherworldsconference@gmail.com

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity.

We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.
