Proposals are invited for an international conference on ‘Ford and Toulon: biography, culture, and environment’ to be held at the Université de Toulon, France.

This conference will bring together scholars working on Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939), a major twentieth-century novelist, editor and cultural commentator. It forms part of a series of events celebrating writerly culture and experience in the city of Toulon, where Ford spent time in the 1920s and 1930s.

Conrad Panel at MLA Convention Chicago (USA) 3-6 January 2019

Conrad’s Politics of Hope

In the spirit of recent challenges to the hermeneutics of suspicion, we invite papers that take the idealism in Conrad’s writing seriously. The law of unintended consequences rules Conrad’s fiction, and characters who voice idealistic aspirations usually fail to achieve them, but does the failure of idealism necessarily discredit it? Does Conrad imagine alternatives to the hypocrisy, selfishness, and materialism he portrays? Does he balance critique with hope? 

Please send abstracts by March 15 to Joyce Wexler
