Women Writing Space Conference


A quick update on the conference that I'm organising, "Women Writing Space: Representations of Gender and Space in post-1850s British Women's Writing". The deadline for paper proposals was yesterday, and we have had an overwhelming response to the call for papers- I thought we were doing well when a week ago we had around 20 abstracts, but the last-minute response has been phenomenal (especially yesterday, 18 more suddenly came in!) so we now have over 50 proposals to read!! Given that we can only accept around 8, it is going to be very difficult to decide on a programme. Whilst many of the prospective participants are from the UK (including much support from our Warwick colleagues), I'm amazed at the international response from a range of different countries and it's wonderful to see that this topic has prompted so much interest from around the world.

So onto the difficult, but enjoyable, task of reading all the abstracts- time to get reading!
