An international conference will be held at the University of Sheffield June 27-29, 2014 to celebrate the 250th birthday of Ann Radcliffe and the launch of a collection of essays upon her work (eds. Townshend and Wright, CUP 2014). Ann Radcliffe at 250: Gothic and Romantic Imaginations, will celebrate the fiction and poetry of the celebrated ‘great enchantress’. Besides formal papers and panels, we will also hold roundtables upon the topics of Teaching Ann Radcliffe and Screening Ann Radcliffe.
The conference aims to draw in an international list of speakers to mark the birthday of Radcliffe and the launch of this essay collection. In addition to launching this collection, there will be further opportunity for participating delegates to publish their work: the organisers have secured no less than three special journal issues to celebrate the 250th anniversary: Romanticism (eds. Callaghan, Firth and Merrills); Women’s Writing (eds. Smith and Bennett) and Gothic Studies (eds. Mathison and Smith).
We now invite proposals for papers and panels, with the deadline of November 30, 2013. Please send all abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit our conference website for details of where to submit your proposals, and further information about the conference itself.
