CFP: [Theatre] The Changing Images of the Businessman through Literature (Collection)

Thursday, February 12, 2009 - 8:34pm
Christa Mahalik

Proposals are sought for a collection of essays about the changing image
of the businessman (or woman) through literature.

Due to interest in the topic of businessman through literature the
opportunity has arisen to partake in submitting an essay to a collection
based solely on this concept.

Topics are not limited to a specific area or concentration. We are
hoping to get a range of essays from different time periods and different
genres of interest. From Shylock, to Bartleby, and the novels of Dickens
to Martin Amis' fierce display of the businessman's persona of 1980s
America and Britain, all ranges of topics about the changing image of
the "businessman" are welcome.

University of Manchester, 4-6 December, 2009

This conference considers the ways in which the conflict period of the 1640s and 1650s have
been manifest in culture, political thought, historiography and popular imagination, from
Southey’s Life of Oliver Cromwell to Clarendon, from To Kill a King to the imminent film of
Paradise Lost. The conference looks at cultural appropriation and the ways in which particular
representational tropes have been developed and perpetuated.
