CALL FOR PAPERS (CLOSES APRIL 30, 2014)
Traverses: J.M. Coetzee in the World
Adelaide, South Australia (November 11-13, 2014)

J. M. Coetzee's works are attracting increasing attention and commentary across disciplines and art forms, including literary studies, philosophy, and other fields of humanistic inquiry including animal rights advocacy. His work has been widely translated, archived and adapted, including for opera and film. This colloquium aims to bring together a distinguished group of participants in this field to discuss questions and responses prompted by Coetzee's work in a 3-day public colloquium in November 2014. It will include an exhibition of archival material, a film program, readings by Coetzee and other distinguished authors, and musical performances as well as scholarly papers related to Coetzee’s work.

We are seeking submissions of abstracts for papers of 20 minutes in length for inclusion in the colloquium. Recognising that the interest in Coetzee’s works is widespread and diverse we welcome papers that address any aspect of Coetzee’s work or the influence of that work.

Please submit the Abstracts via the project website: www.jmcoetzee.net

Papers are due by April 30, 2014 and the final program will be confirmed by May 30.
