Edwardian scholars may be interested in the following CFP:
‘Death, Fire, Life’ – Arnold Bennett’s Short Stories
11th International Conference of the Arnold Bennett Society
to be held on 7th June 2014
at The North Staffs Conference Centre, Hartshill, Newcastle, Staffordshire
At our Seminar in October Martin Laux drew our attention to the many Bennett stories still uncollected, one of which, published in Woman in 1926, bore the dramatic title above. The theme of the Conference in the Society’s 60th Anniversary year will be AB’s short stories both collected and not. The variety of material is so wide that there is much scope for papers looking at the stories from literary, historical, sociological and other viewpoints. Please send your proposals for 20 minute papers in the form of 200 word abstracts to Morag Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1st February 2014.
