CFP – ‘Time and Space in Contemporary Women’s Writing

I’m on the steering group for the PGCWWN, so I thought I’d post our call for papers on here on the off chance someone finds it useful.

The Postgraduate Contemporary Women’s Writing Network (PG CWWN) is pleased to announce its third biennial conference, ‘Time & Space in Contemporary Women’s Writing’, which will be held at the University of Hull on 8th and 9th September 2011. We are delighted to be able to confirm our two keynote speakers:

Professor Ann Heilmann (University of Hull), co-author (with Mark Llewellyn) of Metafiction and Metahistory in Contemporary Women’s Writing (Palgrave 2007) and Neo-Victorianism: The Victorians in the Twenty-First Century, 1999-2009 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010), among numerous other publications on neo-Victorian fiction and women’s writing. For more information about her research, please visit:,-prof-ann.aspx.
