The OGOM Project is known for its imaginative events and symposia, which have often been accompanied by a media frenzy. We were the first to invite vampires into the academy back in 2010. Our most recent endeavour, Company of Wolves: Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Feral Humans enjoyed extensive coverage globally and saw us congratulated in the THES for our ambitious 3 day programme which included actual wolves, ‘a first for a UK academy’.

ACLA Panel: Networks of Adoption

Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 11:42pm
Melissa Dinsman and Beth Rosenberg
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

This call seeks abstracts for the upcoming ACLA conference for papers that will focus on representations of adoption in literature. The goal of this panel is to explore how literary representations of adoption and the formation of adoptive families have changed over time. To do this, we are looking for a broad range of papers that address adoption in literature from different national, religious, racial, gender, and theoretical perspectives. We are also open to definitions of adoption that include varying degrees of legalization.
