Call for Papers: BILL OVERTON MEMORIAL CONFERENCE ON EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY POETRY
Loughborough University, 18-19 September 2013
The organisers are grateful to all those who responded to the first Call for Papers for this memorial conference. There has been a large response from colleagues in Britain and overseas offering papers on a wide variety of topics to do with eighteenth-century poetry. These include a good proportion from postgraduates working in the field, many of them influenced by Bill’s own work.
The purpose of this Second Call for Papers is to give to those who might have missed the first call the opportunity to make a late submission, and to draw attention to the rich programme we’ve been able to assemble and thereby perhaps stimulate ideas to people who might wish to join it. Expressions of interest, titles and abstracts of up to 250 words should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org – with a final submission date of 15 May 2013.
A conference website with a link for registration will open shortly on the Loughborough University website. Those accepted, or those who wish to attend without giving a paper, are invited to register.
