The conference aims to explore the presence of French plays and players in England, and their influence upon native dramatists, critics and actors.

There are still a few places open at the International Conference on Crossroads (treating the English speaking world).

We invite proposals treating the many senses of the term "crossroads," whether physical or not: countries, regions, towns, roads, monuments, sanctuaries, inns, or pilgrimage sites , but also books, paintings, installations or performances. New forms of expression, federating ideas, political and cultural negotiations, cosmopolitanism, cross-fertilizations between the arts, and hybridization of forms and genres can be found at such sites of convergence.

Victorian Poetry Special Issue: Victorian Periodical Poetry

Alison Chapman and Caley Ehnes

Until recently, poetry published in Victorian periodicals was simply ignored. Dismissed as "filler", devalued as sentimental, and denigrated as popular verse, periodical poetry languished behind serial fiction and the more respectable poems published in single-authored collections and anthologies.

But the fortunes of periodical poetry have swiftly and dramatically changed. With the consolidation of the periodical as a central component of Victorian studies, renewed attention has been given to the place of the poem in the periodical.

Transitions in Comparative Studies (University College Cork, Ireland 28-30 June 2011)

full name / name of organization: 
Comparative Literature Association of Ireland/UCC

The comparative gesture performs both the act and the question of transition between the terms compared. Understood as an intercultural practice, comparative literature may thus also be understood as both a transitive and transnational process – creating its own object/form of knowledge as it identifies and analyses lines of relation and exchange between literary cultures. When navigating between languages, it becomes critically engaged with the possibility and methods of such navigation. Meanwhile, interdisciplinary and inter-medial versions of comparative studies likewise centre about transitions which may themselves remain under-analysed.
