Call for Papers

Tenth Annual Southern Connecticut State University Graduate English
Conference:
Reading. Teaching. Theorizing. Writing.

Southern Connecticut State University
Adanti Student Center
April 18, 2009

Panel:
Disillusion and Despair: How Modern British Writers Attempt to Define an
Indefinable World

I am soliciting papers for a panel which seeks to examine the ways in
which Modern British writers explored the changing politics of gender,
faith, class and imperial power while coming to terms with the effects of
the First World War and its aftermath. Of particular interest are papers
which analyze theme, symbol and structure in one work or a comparison of
works. I welcome papers on any literary genre written between the World
Wars.

Papers should be 6-8 pages in length, which will be delivered in 15-20
minute presentations. Proposals should include the paper’s title,
presenter’s name, and contact information (day and evening phone numbers,
e-mail and surface mail address), along with a 250-word abstract of paper.

Deadline: March 1st, 2009. Early submissions requested.

Interested parties should contact:
