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. What is the relationship between literature and the senses?

And how do material texts become stimuli for synaesthetic experiences through their interaction with the physical bodies of writers and readers?
