CFP: The Literary North (19th to 21st century)(UK) (01/09/06; 05/20/06)
Call for papers for a one-day conference
At University of Hull, England
Saturday 20 May 2005 9am to 5pm
Keynote speaker: Professor Cora Kaplan, Southampton University

This conference will reassess the stereotypes of the grim North and the
beautiful South in order to investigate literary representations from
and about the north of England.

With a view to making visible the North of England as a significant
trope as well as a vibrant location for literature from the most
contemporary to the nineteenth century, this conference will challenge
the destructive stereotypes of the North which appear to be gaining
momentum.
