Proposals are invited from on-course PhD students at British universities for short (ten-minute) research papers. The one day conference aims to engage participants in the three established modernist seminars, and the new Welsh Network of Modernist Studies, as well as students who are new to modernist studies in dialogues that will develop and expand our scholarly knowledge. We hope to put together an interdisciplinary programme that will reflect the full diversity of work in modernist studies. Travel bursaries will be available, by competitive application.
The cost of the conference will be £10 (or £5 for BAMS members) and include lunch, tea and coffee, and a Christmas drinks reception. If you are not already a member of BAMS, you can join online at http://bams.ac.uk/membership/ Benefits include a free subscription to Modernist Cultures, free or reduced fee entry to all BAMS events, access to a members-only area of the BAMS website, and subscription to the dedicated BAMS email list.
Please send proposals (300 words), with a short biography (50 words including details of your year of study) by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 18 November 2013. We will inform you whether your abstract has been accepted by November 22nd
