"The Bronte Sisters and Their Work" is the theme for this year's METU British Novelists Conference organized by the Department of Foreign Language Education in Middle East Technical University. The organizers invite proposals for 20-minute presentations on any aspect of the work of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte. Interdisciplinary and comparative approaches placing the work of the Bronte Sisters within contexts such as media, performance and adaptation studies are also welcome. Selected papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
The keynote speaker is Prof. Diane Long Hoeveler, editor of the forthcoming Blackwell volume, A Companion to the Brontës (2014).
