The Coleridge Summer Conference meets again next year in the lime-tree bowers of Cannington College, among the beautiful Quantock Hills a few miles from Nether Stowey and Alfoxden. The College's garden grounds will be available for all participants, and there will be walks on the Quantocks and to the sea. The Rose and Crown inn will welcome us in the evenings. The Abyssinian maid will be flying in; bring your own dulcimer and join us for drinks and talk under the stars on long balmy summer evenings.

We aim for a wide range of papers on the literature of Coleridge's circle and the culture of the times, as well as on Coleridge himself. Abstracts are welcomed on Coleridge, the Coleridge Circle, and Romantic Writing and Culture more generally. Papers on the themes of Poetics and Politics are particularly welcome.

Price: approx. £400 including accommodation and meals.

Deadline for submission of abstracts, which should be no longer than 250 words, and should include THE PROPOSER'S NAME, AFFILIATION AND EMAIL, is 30th November 2013. Decisions will be made by 31st December 2013.

Bursaries (full and partial) will be available for postgraduates and unwaged scholars. Please state on your abstract if you would like to be considered for a bursary.

All abstracts and enquiries should be sent to:
