Tom Ue / Department of English, Dalhousie University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

In celebration of the life and works of the eminent scholar Pierre Coustillas (1930-2018), we invite contributions for proposed panel(s) on Coustillas, George Gissing, and their writing to the Annual Literary London Society Conference. This meeting will be held on 11-12 July 2019 at the Institute of English Studies in the University of London. Coustillas has had a profound influence on Gissing and nineteenth-century studies. From 1969 to April 2013, he edited The Gissing Newsletter and subsequently The Gissing Journal, the organ for Gissing studies. In 1997, Paul F. Mattheisen, Arthur C. Young, and Coustillas completed their landmark project: The Collected Letters of George Gissing.

We would like to invite researchers to submit their abstracts to the Political Performances Working Group at the 2019 IFTR conference, which will take place on 8-12 July in Shanghai, China. The theme for the 2019 conference is Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism. We have identified three loose strands that reflect the recent work of many researchers in the wider field of political performances, but that also align with the 2019 conference theme. The Political Performances Working Group therefore invites proposals for papers on the following topics:

Postmodern and postcolonial intersections

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 28, 2018

This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.
