We invite proposals for 20-minute papers for presentation at the 2024 John Keats Conference. Our conference theme, John Keats in 2024: Prospects and Retrospections, has been broadly conceived to ensure that papers reflecting the full range of current Keats studies can be accommodated. Please email a paper proposal of 200-250 words, with a title and outline of your proposed presentation, to [email protected] to arrive by Saturday 17 February 12 noon UK time. For obvious reasons, all papers should have a significant Keats dimension.
Registration will open on Friday 1 March.
This year’s speakers include:
Andrew Bennett (University of Bristol)
Ella Kilgallon (Curator/Director, the Keats-Shelley House, Rome)
Jonathan Mulrooney (Boston University)
