BWWC 2019: “Movement”

Julius_Caesar_Ibbetson_-_George_Biggins'_Ascent_in_Lunardi'_Balloon_-_WGA11831The 2019 British Women Writers Conference will take place on the plains of Auburn Alabama at Auburn University. The conference will take place from Thursday, April 11 through Saturday, April 13, 2019. The theme for the conference is “movement.”

From transatlantic crossings, transnational diasporas, mobility studies, and the organization of literary history, the idea of movement is rich in significance for the study of British women writers. Our conception of both periods and places is widely defined, and we invite papers that will contribute to a rich discussion of the diversity of women’s writing. Please send a 500-word abstract and a brief bio to bwwc2019@auburn.edu by December 15, 2018.

For more information, see our CFP on the conference website.
