CALL FOR PAPERS: 200 YEARS OF SENSE AND SENSIBILITY
a Two Day Conference
SCHOOL OF ENGLISH, UNIVERSITY OF ST ANDREWS,
9–10 SEPTEMBER 2011
Kathryn Sutherland (St Anne’s College, Oxford)
Paula Byrne (author of the new Harper Collins Jane Austen biography).
‘I am never too busy to think of S&S’, Jane Austen wrote to her sister, Cassandra in April 1811. The year saw the publication of her first novel and to mark the anniversary, we are hosting a conference that reflects upon two hundred years of readership and opens up new interpretations of the novel. We invite proposals for 20-minute papers and round table panels on any aspect of the novel.
Possible topics may include but are not limited to:
Social and historical context
Tradition of Sensibility/contemporary aesthetic theory
Adaptations and appropriations
Re-writings and sequels
The novel’s place in the canon
Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words to the conference organisers, Marina Cano López and Rose Pimentel, at 200sensibilities [at] gmail [dot] com
Please also email us with any questions at the above address. The deadline for proposals is 30 June 2011
