Three very tempting conferences with CFPs:
1. Myth and Dream / The Dreaming of Myth, University of Bologna, 23-24 May 2019; deadline 1 February 2019.
The conference invites proposals addressing diverse approaches to the combination of myth and dream – literary, artistic, scientific or theological – that enjoy attention in the contemporary world.
2. Tales of Terror: Gothic Horror and Weird Short Fiction, University of Warwick, 21-22 March 2019; deadline 1 December 2018.
This two-day conference will explore the appeal, evolutions, and elusiveness of Gothic, Horror, and Weird Short Fiction, and welcomes speakers with new and innovative perspectives at any stage of their academic career.
3. International Conference on Romanticism, University of Manchester, 31 July-2 August 2019; deadline 15 January 2019.
Inspired by the 200th anniversary of Peterloo, our conference theme—‘Romanticism Now and Then’—invites reconsideration not only of the historical events of 1819 and their implications, but also, more broadly, of the relations among politics, aesthetics, and time in any aspect of Romantic art, literature, and culture. Put simply, we are interested in making space for the most rigorously imaginative and significant work being done now that bears on our understanding of the politics, aesthetics, and/or temporalities of Romanticism.
