The Central theme or main contention of this conference is: that since
Carlyle's work is of such great importance to the literature and culture
of the 19th century, and since his responses to the intellectual legacy
of the Enlightenment may be fruitfully related to more recent theoretical
debates and concerns, his work deserves much greater attention within the
wider academic community.

Normally papers will aim to support this central contention at least to
some extent by focusing on any one or more of the topics suggested at the
conference website:

http://www.cc.gla.ac.uk:443/carlyle/index.php

within one of the categories listed on the website and should clearly
indicated which of the topics your paper will address. If proposing a
topic not listed, this should also be clearly indicated.
