CFP: New Work in Modernist Studies

CALL FOR PAPERS

New Work in Modernist Studies

Cardiff Metropolitan University

Saturday 6th December 2014

 

Keynote Speaker: Dr Jane Goldman (University of Glasgow)

The fourth one-day Graduate Conference on New Work in Modernist Studies will take place at Cardiff Metropolitan University (Cyncoed campus), in conjunction with the Welsh Network of Modernist Studies, the London Modernism Seminar, the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the Northern Modernism Seminar, and the British Association of Modernist Studies (BAMS).

As in previous years, this conference will take the form of an interdisciplinary programme reflecting the full diversity of current graduate work in modernist studies; it encourages contributions both from those already involved in the existing networks and from students new to modernist students who are eager to share their work.

Proposals are invited, from PhD research students registered at British universities, for short (10 minutes) research position papers. Your proposal should be no longer than 300 words, and please include with it a short (50 words) biography. It should be emailed to newmodstud2014@gmail.com to which any other enquiries about the conference should also be addressed.

Deadline:  3 November 2014. Acceptance decisions will be communicated within one week.

The conference fee is £15 (£10 for BAMS members) and includes lunch, tea and coffee and a post-conference drinks reception/book launch. If you are not already a member of BAMS, you may wish to join online at http://bams.ac.uk/membership/. Benefits include a free subscription to Modernist Cultures (3 issues per year from 2015), 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.

It is also anticipated that a subsidized contribution to all travel costs over £20 will be offered to all postgraduates who contribute to the conference. Further details will be forthcoming, but please include a separate indication of your estimated travel costs with your proposal. This will not be taken into account when assessing your proposal.
