Making connections: women’s writing 1918-1939

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:36am
University of Bedfordshire
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 28, 2020

'Making connections: women’s writing 1918-1939' is a one-day conference which will be held at the University of Bedfordshire (Bedford campus) on 6th June 2020. 

The interwar period was a time of experimentation in form, but also a time when networks enabled new writers to form connections with each other and with the publishing community.  This conference will focus on those networks, both formal and informal, between writers and writers, and with publishers, film makers, and literary, political and artistic movements. 

Abstracts are invited for papers on women writers from the UK, from Europe and across the world who were writing and publishing between 1918 and 1939.

“Over the Horizon: Comparative Perspectives on Literature” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

As Sarah Lawall stated in her essay, the world-literature perspective is not one, but multiple. By looking at literature comparatively, we can enrich our understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works, to look over the horizon of our own tradition and to see how cultures interact.The conference will consider the theory and the practice of comparative literature and will discuss the transformations and travels of literary genres and texts across time and space. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.Topics may include, but are not limited to:

International Conference on Oral History

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:54pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

For decades, oral history was considered less than scholarly, leading to its exclusion from several history books; thus valuable first-hand experiences and information that could alter historical truth were neglected and ultimately lost to oblivion. Our conference wishes to challenge the pervading view that oral testimony can lead to false representation of historical events and underline the significant support it can provide to historical research, especially in lieu of written documentation.

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include:
