Bronte Conference

The Brontes in Context

2â€"3 May 2008
Centre for Literary Studies at the Institute for Social, Culture and
Policy Research, University of Salford, UK

This two-day conference aims to be a contribution to the
contextualisation of the works of the Bronte sisters. Approaches to and
interpretations of contexts of gender and sexual politics, identity, the
longing for self-realisation, materialism, education, writing and print
culture and the Brontes’ engagement with the publishing spheres, the
negotiation of female authorial identity and the constructed authorial
persona and many more themes are welcomed.

It is hoped that there will be a cluster of papers devoted to Villette
that are intended to be published as a journal special issue.

Abstracts of up to 200 words (as an attachment in MS Word or RTF) should
be submitted to the organizers by 1 April 2008. A conference programme
will be available by 7 April. Please email proposals/abstracts to

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
