Romance novels have often been dismissed by critics because of their nature as a popular genre and for being written and read largely by women. However, in the last decade a number of scholars have approached the study of the romance novel with critical rigor and avoiding the condescending treatment of previous analysis. Quite often in romance novels we encounter characters that have very different backgrounds: come from different countries and cultures, speak different languages, belong to very different social strata or are, in some other way, an “Other” to the rest of the characters and/or the intended readers.

'I think my personages could be reactivated if the times were right: I hope so' --Anita Brookner

17-18 March, 2017

Keynote speakers: Associate Professor Patricia Juliana Smith (Hofstra University) and Professor Peter McPhee (University of Melbourne)

The work of Anita Brookner occupies an ambiguous place in the literary field. Brookner has a cult status, was a Booker-Prize winner and best-selling novelist, and yet her work received what she herself deemed 'censorious' reviews and limited critical attention. Brookner's death was accompanied by conflicted accolades that appeared to celebrate her life while restating the predictable (and vexatious) reading of her identity as a lonely, single woman.

The Wonderful Year 1816 – A bicentenary appraisal

“The value of centenaries and similar observances is that they call attention, not simply to great men, but to what we do with our great men. The anniversary punctuates, so to speak, the scholarly and critical absorption of its subject into society.”

We hope to stimulate academic research and discussion around the theme of cognition, in relation to language (including language teaching), literature, translation and culture. In every aspect of our lives we make judgments and assessments and encounter judgments and assessments made by others, without necessarily examining closely the perspectives, methodologies or theoretical assumptions on which these judgments are based. What established procedures and canons of seeing and understanding govern the way we teach, the way we translate, or the direction of our research in any given area? Is there a need for these procedures or canons to be revised, modified or even abandoned altogether?
