UK Network London Summer 2006 Research Seminar Series: Call for Papers


This series is co-convened for UKNMFS by Dr. Fiona Tolan (University of
Northampton), Steven Barfield (University of Westminster), and Prof. Philip
Tew (Brunel University). The UK Network for Modern Fiction Studies Summer
Seminar Series 2006 is to be held at 309 Regent Street, the University of
Westminster, London, UK.


These research seminars are for Visiting Scholars to London who wish to
present their work in the summer months, and it follows on from the first
two successful series that ran in London in 2004 and 2005. A whole variety
of topics were the subject of papers, but we welcome those from a broad
range of relevant fields beyond simply a narrow conception of fiction,
including literary and cultural studies after 1890, critical theory and
philosophy, narratology and narrative theories, the sociology of literature,
biography and autobiography, travel writing, and gender studies.


The papers from the 2004 and 2005 sessions are to be published in the first
issues of the UKNMFS Journal: Critical Engagements: A Journal of Literature
and Theory. Editors: Prof. Philip Tew (Brunel University), Steven Barfield
(University of Westminster), Dr. Lawrence Phillips (Liverpool Hope
University College) and Special Guest Editor for 2005: Dr. Caryn Maureen
Voiskul (Beijing International University).


All papers presented in the 2006 series will be considered for inclusion in
the second issue of the journal (which will be published in 2007/2008).


Submissions by e-mail only: please send your email with your name, the title
of the proposed paper and a short abstract of the proposed paper (no more

minutes) and add your institutional affiliation and contact details. Direct
