Identity, role and gender have their parts to play in narratives, and recognition may be a feature in plots. Clothing functions in a cultural, semiotic, system. It’s a signifier in the Bible and Shakespeare. We look for associations with Christian and Biblical themes in literary texts, and papers will have a reading time of 20 minutes. Fuller details are on the conference page of the CLSG websitehttps://www.clsg.org/html/conference.html

The deadline for offering a paper is 31 May 2022. Send a provisional title, a few words on how you will tackle your topic and a note about your background by email to Dr Roger Kojecký, secretary@clsg.org
