British Society for Literature and Science
Annual Conference 2016 --“ Call for Papers

The eleventh annual conference of the British Society for Literature and 
Science will take place at the University of Birmingham, from Thursday 7 
April until Saturday 9 April 2016.

Keynote talks will be given by Professor Harriet Ritvo (MIT), Professor 
Sharon Ruston (University of Lancaster), and Professor Alice Roberts 
(University of Birmingham).

The BSLS invites proposals for twenty-minute papers, or panels of three 
papers, on any subjects within the field of literature and science.

In addition, we are hoping to put together sessions with looser, 
non-traditional formats, and would welcome proposals from any person or 
persons interested in making presentations of approximately ten minutes 
from notes rather than completed papers. Our hope is that the latter 
format will encourage longer Q&A sessions with more discussion. If you 
have a topic or research area which would suit such a discussion, we 
would also like to hear from you.

Please send an abstract (c.200 words) and short biographical note to the 
conference organiser, Will Tattersdill (w.j.tattersdill at bham.ac.uk), by 
no later than 5pm GMT, Friday 4 December 2015. Please include the 
abstract and biographical note in the body of the email and not in an 
attachment. All proposers of a paper or panel will receive notification 
of the results by the end of January 2015.

The conference fee will be waived for two graduate students in exchange 
for written reports on the conference, to be published in the BSLS 
Newsletter. If you are interested in being selected for one of these 
awards, please mention this when sending in your proposal. To qualify 
you will need to be registered for a postgraduate degree at the time of 
the conference.

Group, University of Western Sydney
