English Graduate Conference 2012 - Intersections

15 November 2011

Call for Papers

Institute of English Studies, Senate House, University of London WC1E 7HU

The UCL English Graduate Society invites abstracts for 20-minute papers for this year's Intersections conference.

The conference will be held on Friday 9 March, 2012, and will be a forum for discussion of cultural and ideological exchange, both within literature and between literature and other disciplines.

Proposals are invited for contributions that deal with any of the following:

  • Literary influence
  • Collaborative authorship 
  • Interdisciplinary approaches to literary studies 
  • Cross-cultural exchange 
  • Polyglot studies 
  • Interactions between authors and their readers, publishers and editors 
  • The intersection as an image in literature

The Intersections conference aims to solicit a range of papers united by a common view of literature as built upon collaboration, influence, and interchange.

The conference will take place at the Institute of English Studies at Senate House, and will occur in conjunction with a Royal Holloway sponsored lecture by Jacques Rancière, whose work on intercultural exchange has changed scholarly understanding of the intersection between politics and art.

Please submit 300-word proposals for 20-minute papers by 13 January 2012 to:

Proposals for panels of three 20-minute papers are also welcome. We welcome panels that include researchers from a variety of institutions or disciplines.

For further information visit the Institute of English Studies events page. 

The Intersections conference is being organised by research students in the UCL English Department in collaboration with Hannah Crumme from the UCL School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS).
