CFP : 2014 conference of the European Society for the Study of English, Kosice 2014

Call for papers for Seminar

2014 conference of the European Society for the Study of English, Kosice, Slovakia

29-08-2014 - 02-09-2014

1914

Few dates have the terrible resonance as does "1914". On its hundredth anniversary, we propose to focus on the events, images, memories and commemorations of this date. Choosing the one specific year allows us to look both at the experience and meaning of the last months of peace, at the arrival of war, and at the gradual realizations of the depth of the changes involved. We hope for a wide range of proposals ; preference will be given to those which examine less well-covered areas of culture, history, and civilization. Proposals concerning later representations of the year’s events and atmosphere are of course welcome.

Proposals (around 250 words) should be sent to both

John Mullen, Université Paris-Est Créteil, France, john.mullen@wanadoo.fr

And David Malcolm, University of Gdansk, Poland, angmd@gda.pl

Deadline : 28 February 2014
