The BARS Early Careers and Postgraduate Conference for 2014 invites submissions for 15 minute papers on ‘Romantic Locations’. Our format for 2014 will be held over three days and two nights.
This conference will broadly be concerned with the roles played by places, spaces and the local in Romantic-period texts and thought. However, we invite delegates to address the theme creatively, reconsidering and challenging traditional interpretations of the importance of location for Romantic-era authors. See attached document for possible themes. Along with panel sessions and two keynote addresses, the conference will feature a session on manuscripts run by the Curator of the Wordsworth Trust, Jeff Cowton.
Each panel paper will last fifteen minutes. Please send abstracts of up to 200 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information as it becomes available, including advice on accommodation and travel, please see: http://www.bars.ac.uk/locations.php.
Deadline for abstracts: Friday 15th November 2013. We aim to notify successful speakers by mid-December 2013.
