CFP: A Dissident Kingsley: The Life and Work of Lucas Malet (5/3/2019; 6/15/2019)

The Life and Work of Lucas Malet

The Kingsley Hotel, Eversley, UK

June 15, 2019

This is a call for abstracts of short papers (ca. 3,000 words) on the work of Lucas Malet to be presented at a summer symposium in Eversley, Hampshire. Organised in conjunction with the CK200 Festival (https://ck200.live) celebrating the bicentennial of the author’s father Charles Kingsley, this symposium provides students and scholars the opportunity to discuss recent research on Malet’s work.

Abstracts of 250 words should be sent to the organisers: Dr Jane Ford, Teeside University (J.Ford@tees.ac.uk) and Dr Justine Pizzo, University of Southampton (J.F.Pizzo@soton.ac.uk) by Friday, 3 May 2019. Proposals may address any aspect of the author’s work; postgraduate students and scholars working on single-author studies or considering Malet’s work alongside that of other writers are welcome.

The symposium will take place at The Kingsley hotel—formerly the “The Keys,” Malet’s personal residence. 20 minute presentations will be followed by a discussion about the future of the Malet scholarship.
