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 email@example.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.
Proposals are now being accepted for ‘Poetry and Collaboration in the Age of Modernism’, an interdisciplinary conference running at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, 2nd – 3rd July 2015. Keynote speakers include Alex Davis (University College Cork) and Peter Howarth (Queen Mary). The full call for papers can be found here.
The audio from Vicki Mahaffey’s keynote paper from ‘Objects of Modernity’ – ‘Human Objects in Cocteau and Joyce’ – is now available on YouTube here.
This Wednesday (28 May) our very own Rosie Young will be presenting a paper based on her current PhD research. The paper is entitled ‘T. S. Eliot’s “The Waste Land” and Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain: A Literary Comparison’ and will take place at 4-5pm in the Law Boardroom. All welcome!
