We invite proposals for 20-minute papers and round tables on any aspect of the novel.
Possible topics may include but are not limited to:
• Social and historical context
• Reception of the novel
• Cult of Sensibility/contemporary aesthetic theory
• Literary influences
• Adaptations of the novel
• Re-writings, sequels and appropriations of the novel
• The novel’s place in the canon
