We are pleased to announce a CFP for submissions to a two-day conference dedicated to the work of A.S. Byatt, in the presence of the author.
As 2015 will mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of Possession, A Romance (1990), we welcome new approaches to this novel. Propositions on her other novels and her short stories will however also be considered.
The conference is dedicated to the memory of A.S. Byatt's French translator, Professor Jean-Louis Chevalier (University of Caen) who was awarded the Prix Baudelaire for his translation of Possession in 1994. Consequently contributions on the translation of Byatt's works would also be of interest as a panel will be organised between A.S. Byatt and her current French translators.

Conference organizers: Dr Armelle Parey (Université de Caen-Basse Normandie), Dr Isabelle Roblin (Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale)

Abstracts with a short bibliography (300 words) should be sent with a brief bio-bibliography no later than June 1st, 2014 to AND
