Description

17th METU BRITISH NOVELISTS CONFERENCE

Hanif Kureishi and His Work

December 17-18, 2009

Keynote Speaker: Susan Thomas

This is the seventeenth of the series of 2-day conferences organized by the Department of Foreign Language Education, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, on BRITISH NOVELISTS. This year the conference theme is Hanif Kureishi and his fiction, and his other critical and creative work; and we are seeking paper proposals that aim interdisciplinary and innovative investigations of his works. By encouraging submissions from a broad variety of disciplines, theoretical perspectives and genres, including but not limited to, post-colonialism, feminism, sexuality, gender, literature, philosophy, performance, cultural studies, and media studies, we seek to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars and participants from different backgrounds and to encourage dialogue between them. Proposals using any methodology by established academics, as well as by young scholars and graduate students are welcomed. We also encourage performance submissions.

Proposals for 20-minute papers (about 200 words) should be sent by 30 September 2009. Please include name, institutional affiliation, student status (graduate or undergraduate), contact information (address, email address), and a list of any audio/visual equipment needed for your presentation. Please address queries and submit proposals via email to Nurten Birlik: nbirlik@metu.edu.tr
