We invite proposals for 20-minute papers for presentation at the 2023 John Keats Conference. Our conference theme, Conversations with Keats, 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 Tuesday 14 February 12 noon UK time. For obvious reasons, all papers should have a significant Keats dimension.
Registration will open on Wednesday 1 March.

Please bear in mind that if your paper is accepted for presentation you should plan to attend for all or most of the conference programme. Registration covers administrative overheads, teas, coffees, wine reception, Conference Dinner, and so on, for the duration of the conference.
To undergraduate and postgraduate students and unwaged we offer a concession fee. Except for the Conference Dinner on Saturday 20 May, meals during the conference are not covered by the conference fee. Overnight accommodation during the conference is wholly at the discretion of participants.
If you have significant funding deadlines please alert us to these.
