CFP: Decadence and the Senses: An Interdisciplinary Conference (12/31/2013; 4/10-11/2014)

“Decadence and the Senses: An Interdisciplinary Conference”
Goldsmiths, University of London,
April 10-11, 2014
Deadline: December 31, 2013

Keynote Speaker: Catherine Maxwell (Queen Mary, University of London).

This interdisciplinary conference explores the relationship of Decadence and the senses, and the ways in which Decadent writers attempt to capture fleeting sensations.  It is an opportunity to trace common visual, aural and “perfumed” motifs in Decadent works, and to reflect on the extent to which the senses are important to our understanding of the tradition. 

We welcome proposals on any aspect of Decadence and the senses. Papers should be about 20 mins in length. Abstracts of 500 words plus brief biography should be sent to: decadence2014@gold.ac.uk by December 31, 2013.
