We are thrilled to announce that the conference is being sponsored by the journal for Women’s Writing, published by Routledge. Do check out the great work being done in this journal!


Women’s is a fully refereed international journal focusing on women’s writing up to the end of the long nineteenth century. The Editors welcome theoretical and historical perspectives, and contributions that are concerned with gender, culture, race and class. The aim of the journal is to open up a forum for 
dialogue, discussion and debate about the work of women writers, and hopes to reflect the diversity of scholarship that can be brought tobear on this area of study. Read more about the journal here:
