Call for Papers
New Work in Modernist Studies
The University of Edinburgh
Saturday 7th December 2013

Keynote Lecture: Professor Randall Stevenson (University of Edinburgh)

This one-day graduate conference is the third joint-event held by the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the London Modernism Seminar, and the Northern Modernism Seminar and in collaboration with the British Association of Modernist Studies (BAMS).

Proposals are invited from on-course PhD students at British universities for short (ten-minute) research papers. The conference aims to engage participants in the three established modernist seminars, and the new Welsh Network of Modernist Studies, as well as students who are new to modernist studies in dialogues that will develop and expand our scholarly knowledge. Building on the impressive range of the New Work in Modernist Studies events since 2010, we hope to put together an interdisciplinary programme that will reflect the full diversity of work in modernist studies. Travel bursaries will be available, by competitive application.

The cost of the conference will be £10 (or £5 for BAMS members) and include lunch, tea and coffee, and a Christmas drinks reception. If you are not already a member of BAMS, you can join online at Benefits include a free subscription to Modernist Cultures, free or reduced fee entry to all BAMS events, access to a members-only area of the BAMS website, and subscription to the dedicated BAMS email list.

Please send proposals (300 words), with a short biography (50 words including details of your year of study) by email to: by November 18th. We will inform you whether your abstract has been accepted by November 22nd.
