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. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of literature and sensory perception. What is the relationship between literature and the senses? 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?
Sponsored by the Center for Medieval-Renaissance Studies at the University of Virginia's College at Wise, the UVa-Wise Medieval-Renaissance Conference promotes scholarly discussion in all disciplines of Medieval and Renaissance studies. This year's conference begins on Thursday, Sept. 26, and concudes on Saturday, Sept.
