Call for Papers: 'Fin de Siecle' seminar, 1870-1920

The University of Oxford 'Fin de Siecle' seminar invites proposals for 45- to
50-minute papers on any aspect of literature, society and the arts in Britain
during the period between 1870 and 1920. Proposals for papers with an
international dimension will be considered.

Now in its sixth year, the seminar is a lively forum in which graduates
and established academics discuss fresh perspectives on turn-of-the-century
culture. It attracts attention from a broad community of researchers both
within and outside Oxford, who value its rigorous scholarly discussion.
Recent papers have examined such diverse subjects as:

the cultural representations of the British South Africa Company
the letters of the actress Ellen Terry
the socialist politics of the activist and writer Clementina Black
place-names in the poetry of Edward Thomas and A. E. Housman
Russian emigrés and the English reception of Ivan Turgenev
