Great Writing 2011
The UK's 14th Annual Great Writing International Creative Writing Conference
Imperial College London
Saturday June 18th - Sunday June 19th 2011
Critical or creative presentations are invited for this, the 14th Annual Great Writing International Creative Writing Conference, 18th – 19th June 2011. (Limited remaining space – presentations from the UK, USA, continental Europe, Australia, China, and more!)
To be held at one of the UK's great universities and great locations: Imperial College London, South Kensington, a cultural centre for the arts, sciences, music and museums, close to Royal Albert Hall and right next to the wonderful Natural History Museum.
Recently adaptation theorists have argued for a re-valuing of adaptations and of the dynamic between originary texts and their adaptation. Critics such as Brian McFarlane, Imelda Whelehan, and Deborah Cartmell have argued that adaptations carry "cultural capital" equal to the original's, and that putting a material, original text in dialogue with an adaptation provides an opportunity to revalue, perhaps increase the value of the original.

To help usher in the global celebration of his bicentenary in 2012, the 41st annual conference of the Victorians Institute will focus rather broadly on the life and work of Charles Dickens. We welcome papers that examine Dickens's writings and their relevance to us today. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary essays exploring the literary life and legacy of Dickens in relation to science, economics, psychology, sociology, philosophy, law, history, aesthetics, and theater and film adaptation.
