New Work in Modernist Studies 11, online, 10 Dec 2021 (deadline 20 Oct)

About the conference

The eleventh one-day graduate conference on New Work in Modernist Studies will take place online on Friday 10 December 2021, in conjunction with the Modernist Network Cymru (MONC), the London Modernism Seminar, the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the Northern Modernism Seminar, the Midlands Modernist Network and the British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS).

BAMS is dedicated to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion (please see our Code of Conduct).   As in previous years, this conference will take the form of an interdisciplinary programme reflecting the full diversity of current graduate work in modernist studies; it encourages contributions both from those already involved in the existing networks and from students new to modernist studies who are eager to share their work.  We particularly encourage proposals from BAME students, who we recognise are underrepresented in the field.

Usually the event is open only to students at British and Irish institutions as we offer each student a travel bursary.  However, as the event will be held virtually again this year, we encourage PhD students from around the world to apply.  The conference will be held during the working day in the UK (approx. 9.30am – 5pm, with regular breaks); please let us know if you are attending from elsewhere in the world and need this to be taken into account.

The day will include a plenary session, with details to be confirmed.

Unfortunately, the coffee breaks and drinks reception will still have to be in your own home this year.  We are keen to enable the making of connections that usually happens in those spaces between academic papers and panels, and are working on ways of doing so.

Proposals
Proposals are invited from registered PhD students for short (10 minutes maximum) research position papers.  Your proposal should be no more than 250 words. Please also include a short biography of no more than 50 words.  If you are outside the UK and Ireland, please give your location and time difference to the UK.

Proposals for and questions about the event should be sent to nwims@bams.ac.uk.

Deadline for proposals: 9am UK time, Wednesday 20 October 2021.

Acceptance decisions will be communicated within two weeks.

Applicants and delegates are encouraged to let us know about any access needs they might have, and if we are able to adjust the application or presentation process, we will endeavour to do so.

Registration
We’ll host the conference by Zoom, and there won’t be any charge to attend.
