We are pleased to announce that registration for the ‘Time & Space in Contemporary Women’s Writing’ conference is now open! The conference will be held at the University of Hull on the 8th and 9th September 2011.
Contemporary women’s writing continues to be preoccupied with and influenced by conceptualisations of time and space, both as separate and as inherently interconnected concepts. At the turn of the millennium, it is inevitable that feminist theory, politics and practice are increasingly interested in the relationships between past, present and future, and at the same time they have also become more global and diversified in their focus. This event seeks to explore the ways in which contemporary women writers – through fiction and non-fiction, short story and poetry, drama and critical theory – engage with and conceptualise notions of time and space in their work.
The conference will include keynotes by Professor Ann Heilmann (University of Hull) and Gwyneth Lewis (poet and writer), as well as a workshop, led by Professor Mark Llewellyn (University of Strathclyde), on early career development and the writing of grant applications.
We warmly invite postgraduates and early-career researchers from across the arts and humanities to register for this event. Registration for the full conference will be £30 and will include refreshments throughout both days, a generous buffet lunch, as well as the conference dinner. To register, please download and complete the appropriate registration form and return it either by email or post with your payment by cheque.
If you have any questions about this event or if you would like to submit a late abstract for consideration, please do not hesitate to get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share this post with colleagues and download and print this poster to display in your department.
