For Love or Money? Contemporary Women’s Fiction

This looks interesting. It's a little outside my field, but it looks interesting all the same.


‘For Love or Money? Contemporary Women’s Fiction in the
Marketplace,’ 21–23 April 2006, at the University of Wales, Bangor

Keynote Speaker: Sarah Waters


This three-day International conference will focus on questions concerning the relationship between contemporary women’s fiction and the contemporary media.
It will address a broad range of issues, including – among others –
– the role played by the publishing industry in the literary marketplace,
– the relationship between the literary prize and the formation of a contemporary ‘canon’ of women writers,
– the place of the woman writer in relation to the Higher Education literature curriculum,
– the relationship between books and their adaptation for a media audience through film, television and radio.

Suggestions for themed panels are also welcome.

The acclaimed novelist, Sarah Waters, will be giving an interview about
her work at the conference, including talking about the adaptations of
Tipping the Velvet and Fingersmith for television.

Abstracts (max. 500 words) for conference papers, which will be of 20
minutes’ duration, should be submitted no later than 31 October, 2005.

If submitting abstracts for a themed panel, these should be collated
and submitted as a single item. The final selection will be made by members of the CWWN Steering Group (see below). A draft programme will be made available by 30 November, 2005.

Abstracts should, in the first instance, be submitted to Dr Lucie
Armitt, Dept. of English, University of Wales, Bangor, Gwynedd LL57
2DG, United Kingdom – els037@bangor.ac.uk.

Further details are also available from Mrs Linda Jones, Research Administrator, els042@bangor.ac.uk, or members of the CWWN Steering Group.
