CFP: Katherine Mansfield and her Circle


Katherine Mansfield and her Circle

23 November 2013 at Birkbeck, University of London

Katherine Mansfield’s first collection of stories, In a German Pension, was published in 1911. Hosted by the Katherine Mansfield Society, in association with Birkbeck University of London, this exciting one-day international symposium, the first of its kind, will bring together emerging modernist scholars to present and discuss new research relating to both Mansfield and her contemporaries. We are delighted to announce our keynote speaker for the day will be Dr Andrew Harrison, Director of the D. H. Lawrence Research Centre, University of Nottingham.

Proposals for 15-minute papers are invited from postgraduates. Directions might include discussion of newly-discovered texts; circulation of texts and modernist magazines; materiality; genre; class; the everyday; the fantastic; non-literary arts; philosophical and theoretical approaches; World War One; illness; bohemianism; the post/colonial; the visual arts and the theatrical; fashion; influence.

Please send 200-word proposals and a biographical sketch to by August 1st 2013

The event is free to KMS members. Non-members: £15.

An unwaged/student membership to the KMS costs just £20 and offers considerable benefits, including an annual copy of Katherine Mansfield Studies, the society’s prestigious yearbook, published by Edinburgh University Press. For further details and how to join, go to our website:
