CFP: Jane Austen and Contemporary Literature and Culture (UK) (04/30/07; 06/23/07)
Proposals are invited for contributions to a study day on this theme at Chawton House, Hampshire, UK (the home of Jane Austen's brother). We wish to bring together scholars with an interest in contemporary re-writings and re-visions of Jane Austen, with a view to publishing an edited collection of essays. Possible topics might include:
Jane Austen sequels or prequels, re-writings such as Bridget Jones's Diary, film and TV adaptations, phenomena such as Karen Joy Fowler's The Jane Austen Book Club and the Jane Austen Guide to Dating, biographies, Jane Austen pornography, etc.
