"Print Modernities, 1845 – 1945"
A Graduate Conference at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver.
2-3 May 2011.

This graduate conference will be concerned with the relationships between "modernity" and print production. "Modernity" and "print" should be understood in the broadest sense, and interdisciplinary papers are especially encouraged. We are interested in the commercialization of literary modernism, in the visual representations of modernity, and in the social impact of technical innovations in the printing industry from 1845 to 1945. Possible considerations are:

Dickens and the Idea of 'The Dickensian': A Tale of Four Cities, 2-8 February 2012

The aim of this week-long travelling conference is to celebrate the bicentenary of Dickens's birth, which falls on 7 February 2012, in a manner befitting a writer who has given so much to so many around the globe. It takes the form of a kind of pilgrimage - festive, of course, rather than solemn - joining four cardinal places central to Dickens's life and art. This journey of critical discovery takes us from Paris, where he finished Little Dorrit, to Condette near Boulogne where he spent time with Ellen Ternan, to Rochester and Chatham where he grew up, to end up in London, the city with which he is so often associated (rightly or wrongly), on the birthday itself.

The Edwardian Ford Madox Ford: Culture, Politics, and Gender

An International Conference organised in association with the Ford Madox Ford Society

The University of Glasgow, 6-8 September 2011

CALL FOR PAPERS

Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) made a major contribution to the literature and culture of the Edwardian era as a novelist, poet, editor, and critic. While much scholarship has focused on Ford's collaboration with Conrad, his success as a writer of historical fiction, and the founding and editing of the groundbreaking English Review during these years, there remains much exciting work to be done on this period of Ford's life and work.

Sights and Sites: Topographical Approaches to British Cinema - A Post-Graduate Study Day, 2nd April 2011, Queen Mary University

updated: 
Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 3:25am
Queen Mary, University of London

In the last two decades the notions of 'space' and 'place' have become a paramount topic within film studies, often encouraging interdisciplinary work with subjects as far-ranging as geography, anthropology and post-colonial studies. With no sign of the topographical approach losing momentum, this post-graduate study day intends to use the topic of space, in all its myriad forms, to encourage innovative discussions on British Cinema. The deliberate choice of a broad area of film studies as an entry point to consider British Cinema is intended to attract postgraduate students from a variety of specialisms, ensuring a day of intellectually vibrant and diverse presentations and dialogues.
