as Thomas Pynchon, there have always existed communities of writers, =
often joined by artists working in different media. From the =
Shelley-Circle to the Bloomsbury group, many of these cultural =
communities engaged with utopian schemes and philosophies in their work. =

REVISITING ELIZABETH GASKELL AND HER WORKS

2-day conference on Elizabeth Gaskell

22-23 September 2006, University of Salford, UK

In recent years Elizabeth Gaskell has attracted renewed scholarly attention,
and contextualisations of her minor works and letters were offered in
addition to the numerous studies of well-known texts such as Mary Barton.
The conference offers to supplement this research by a comprehensive
consideration of Gaskell's major and lesser-known works. A publisher has
expressed interest in publishing revised versions of the conference papers.

Please submit short abstracts (300 words) for 30-minute papers to the
organizers at Gaskellconference_at_hotmail.co.uk

R. K. Narayan Birth-Centenary Conference

A birth-centenary conference on R. K. Narayan will be held from 10 to 12
October 2006 at Mysore. The conference is organized by the Indian
Association for Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (IACLALS) and
the Sahitya Akademi (the National Academy of Letters), New Delhi.

Of all the Indian novelists in English, R. K. Narayan remains one of the
most highly regarded, perhaps the most widely popular, and even the most
"typically Indian". On the occasion of his birth-centenary, we propose to
bring together a group of scholars and admirers of Narayan to re-read and
revaluate his life, works, context and legacy.
