The Founding Conference of the British Society for Literature and Science

Proposals for 20-minute papers are invited for the founding conference of
the British Society for Literature and Science. The conference will be held
at the University of Glasgow from 24-26 March 2006. Papers may address
topics in the interactions of literature and science in any period and any
languages. Presenters need not be based in UK institutions.

Proposals are on any topics are welcome, but we would especially encourage
proposals reflecting on methodological questions (particularly questions of
history and historicisms) or on how this interdisciplinary field can benefit
by broadening or redefining its disciplinary base, for example by
considering what the sociology of science can bring to science and
literature studies. We also invite panel proposals for three papers of 20
minutes; members of the panel should be drawn from more than
one institution.

Please send an abstract of no more than 400 words (or in the case of a
panel, abstracts for each paper) to Dr Alice Jenkins, Department of English
Literature, University of Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ or, by 30 November 2005. If using email, please
send abstracts in the body of messages; do not use attachments. In sending
hard copy, please include an anonymous proposal and a cover sheet giving
contact details.

Please send any queries to Dr Alice Jenkins at the postal or email addresses
