CALL FOR PAPERS
POSTGRADUATE STUDY DAY
Friday 26th April 2013, Worcester College, Oxford
Jennifer Rushworth, Worcester College, Oxford, and Richard Mason, King’s College London
We are pleased to open the Call for Papers for an upcoming postgraduate study day especially dedicated to graduate students working on Proust. The aim of this venture is to encourage dialogue and collaboration between current students of Proust and to gain a greater awareness of trends at the cutting edge of Proust studies. Since postgraduate study in the humanities can often be an isolated affair, the motivation behind this study day is that of enabling discussion and the sharing of ideas within a friendly and informal environment, and the establishment of a network of early-career Proustians for the purposes of future events and research.
Papers, in either English or French, should be a maximum of 20 minutes and should aim to present a significant aspect of the speaker’s current research, however provisional or tentative. New theoretical approaches to Proust, as well as any other aspect of Proustian research (sources, intertexts, and so forth), are particularly welcome.
Please email 250-word abstracts (text only, no attachments please) by 1st March 2013 to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please remember to include your name, affiliation, and thesis title.
There will be a registration fee of £10 payable on the day to cover the costs of organisation and refreshments.
