Literary London Conference 2014

'Ages of London'

Institute of English Studies, 23-25 July 2014

Featuring the Literary London Annual Lecture, by Bernadine Evaristo: 'London, Londinium, Londolo: The Endless Possibilities of Re-Imagining London': evening 23 July

Plenary Speakers: Bernardine Evaristo (Brunel), Mark Ford (UCL), Lynne Segal (Birkbeck), and David Skilton (Cardiff).

For our 2014 conference, proposals are invited for papers, comprised panels, and roundtable sessions, which consider any period or genre of literature about, set in, inspired by, or alluding to central and suburban London and its environs, from the city's roots in pre-Roman times to its imagined futures.

The main focus of the conference is literary text and representation, but we actively encourage interdisciplinary contributions relating film, architecture, geography, theories of urban space, etc., to literary representations of London. Papers from postgraduate students are particularly welcome for consideration.
