For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.

After Dickens
Keynote Speakers: Professor Kamilla Elliott (Lancaster University) and Professor Juliet John (Royal Holloway)

With a performance of ‘Fagin’s Last Hour’ by James Hyland and post-show talk.

Chesterton closes this chapter with the enigmatic promise of meeting Dickens – and his characters – in “the tavern at the end of the world”. At a threshold moment for Dickens studies, Chesterton is not only looking back to find Dickens, he is also looking forward.
