University College London's Department of English is pleased to announce its annual graduate conference, 'SYNAESTHESIA', to be held on Friday 14th June 2019. We welcome proposals from Masters students, PhD students and recent graduates working in all literary periods on the theme of synaesthesia. What is the relationship between literature and the senses? And what kinds of unorthodox sensory experience can texts yield? How does written and oral language render or disturb the categories of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch? And how do material texts become stimuli for synaesthetic experiences through their interaction with the physical bodies of writers and readers?
The Southern Writers/Southern Writing Conference (SW/SW) is a graduate student event hosted by the University of Mississippi from 18-20 July 2019.

We welcome abstracts for paper and panel proposals that explore southern literature, writers, culture, and key figures.
