This is a call for abstracts of short papers (ca. 3,000 words) on the work of Lucas Malet to be presented at a summer symposium in Eversley, Hampshire. Organised in conjunction with the CK200 Festival (https://ck200.live), celebrating the bicentennial of the author’s father Charles Kingsley, this symposium provides students and scholars opportunity to discuss recent research on Malet’s work.

Abstracts of 250 words should be sent to the organisers: Dr Jane Ford, Teeside University (J.Ford@tees.ac.uk) and Dr Justine Pizzo, University of Southampton (J.F.Pizzo@soton.ac.uk) by Friday, 3 May 2019. Proposals may address any aspect of the author’s work; we welcome postgraduate students and scholars working on single-author studies or considering Malet’s work alongside other writers.

The symposium will take place at The Kingsley hotel—formerly the ‘The Keys’, Malet’s personal residence. Presentations will be followed by a discussion about the future of Malet scholarship.
