deadline for submissions:

University College London's Department of English is pleased to announce its annual graduate conference 'SYNAESTHESIA', to be held on Friday 14th June 2019. We welcome proposals from Masters students, PhD students and recent graduates working in all literary periods on the theme of synaesthesia. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of literature and sensory perception. What is the relationship between literature and the senses? What kinds of unorthodox sensory experience can texts yield? How does written and oral language render or disturb the categories of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch?

“Not Just Amongst the Gothic: Doubles, Duality, and Doppelgangers in Children’s and Young Adult Literature”

updated: 
Wednesday, February 27, 2019 - 9:38am
Children's and Young Adult Literature and Culture Permanent Session/Midwest Modern Language Association Chicago, IL November 14-17, 2019.
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.
