CFP: The Literary London Society Annual Conference

Literary London 22-24 July 2015

“London in Love”

Confirmed plenary speakers:

Gregory Dart (University College London)
Imtiaz Dharker (poet, artist, and documentary film-maker)
Kate Flint (University of Southern California)

The annual conference of the Literary London Society hears papers, comprised panels, and roundtables that consider every period and 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. 

While papers on all areas of literary London are welcomed, the conference theme in 2015 is ‘London in Love’. 

To submit a proposal for a 20-minute paper, a comprised panel of 3 speakers, or a roundtable with 5 participants, please choose the appropriate link in the box on the right. The deadline for receipt of submissions is 28 February 2015.
