I am inviting proposals to contribute to a collection of essays on the subject of dreams in British literature. I have collected essays covering the Renaissance period as well as one essay on dreams in 19th-century British literature. To round out this collection, I would like to have a few more essays that discuss the Romantic and Victorian periods. Please submit abstracts of 500 words by March 1. If selected for this collection, your full essay (6000-7000 words) will be requested by the end of 2013. Please use Chicago style.

EXTENDED DEADLINE 20th Jan - Feminism; Influence; Inheritance

updated: 
Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 6:14am
School of English and Drama - Queen Mary, University of London

This one-day symposium hosted by the School of English and Drama at Queen Mary, University of London aims to bring together postgraduates and academics to explore how the issues of feminism, influence and inheritance animate or problematize their work and practice in the field of literary study. Through this conference we aim to begin a discussion about the challenges and anxieties, but also the significant rewards of engaging with our substantial feminist inheritance as scholars working in English Studies today. It will seek to consider how contemporary research relates to the rich, complex and extensive history of feminist research in the discipline and explore how new directions in literary study might be informed by the work of the past.

Sherlock Holmes, Past and Present, 21 and 22 June 2013 [Update]

updated: 
Friday, January 4, 2013 - 7:15am
Senate House, London

This conference offers a serious opportunity to bring together academics, enthusiasts, creative practitioners and popular writers in a shared discussion about the cultural legacy of Sherlock Holmes. The Strand Magazine and the Sherlock Holmes stories contribute one of the most enduring paradigms for the production and consumption of popular culture in the twentieth- and the twenty-first centuries. The stories precipitated a burgeoning fan culture including various kinds of participation, wiki and crowd-sourcing, fan-fiction, virtual realities and role-play gaming. All of these had existed before but they were solidified, magnified and united by Sherlockians and Holmesians in entirely new ways and on scales never seen before.
