This section invites papers that explore the theme of “Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers” that run through English literature and culture after 1900. This section encourages dialogues from a wide range of disciplines. Papers that discuss any form of duality and doubles—whether physical, emotional, psychological, or cognitive—are welcomed, including (but not limited to) alter-egos, doppelgängers, siblings, twins, mirror images, reflections, ghosts, archenemies, and evils. Papers that explore the relationship between a detective figure (the pursuer) and a criminal (the pursued) are most welcome.

Please submit a 250-word abstract with your paper title and a brief bio to Soohyun Cho at chosooh1@msu.edu by April 15, 2019.
