Another quick update from me- this term has been an awful lot busier than expected! After writing an initial draft of chapter 4 I've spent a few weeks re-drafting the structure of the chapter, as the material on travelling through European spaces proved rather difficult to manage. However, now the re-structuring work is done the actual re-write should be relatively straightforward.
The programme for Literary London is now up on the conference website- I'm speaking on the first day, in the first of two panels on The Nineteenth-Century Novel. The rest of the schedule looks very interesting, and with 5 parallel sessions throughout both days there's plenty of choice when it comes to which panels to attend.
I've started preparing my paper for this conference and will get a chance to trial my initial thoughts at the English Department Symposium tomorrow. I stepped in at rather short notice to fill a last-minute gap in the programme, so I was working very hard yesterday trying to get a presentable paper together! It will be very much a work-in-progress piece but it will be a useful opportunity to get some feedback before the London conference, especially as structuring the paper has proved challenging.
At least next week I'll be taking a much-needed week off!
