CFP: [20th] Angela Carter: A Critical Exploration 06/05/2009 - 06/07/2009
Angela Carter: A Critical Exploration
UKNMFS in Association with the University of Northampton
June 5th â€" 7th 2009
Keynote Speakers: Dr. Sarah Gamble, Dr. Rebecca Munford and Prof. Anja
Angela Carter ranks as one of the most studied and significant British
authors of the late-twentieth century. Regarded as an emblem of
the â€˜postmodernâ€™ but with an oeuvre marked by far greater depth and
complexity, her work remains an outstanding testament to her artistic
achievements. Notable for their intricate fusing of symbolism and parody
with a deliberate mixing of generic forms, Carterâ€™s works stand in
juxtaposition with the concerns of post-war British Fiction.
This conference seeks papers on any aspects of Carterâ€™s life and work.
