'"SATIRE'S GLASS": SATIRE AND VISUAL ARTS IN THE LONG EIGHTEENTH CENTURY'.
GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE IN 18TH CENTURY AND ROMANTIC STUDIES - ENGLISH FACULTY, UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE - EXTERNAL RESPONDENT: PROFESSOR VIC GATRELL.
This conference run by students for students provides the opportunity for graduate students from around the country to discuss their research in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. It provides an excellent first conference experience for new graduate students, but the range of panels chaired by eighteenth century and Romantic studies experts from the University of Cambridge are equally suitable for PhD and post-doctoral students. Papers need only relate to one aspect of the conference title.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: 3rd April 2009
The English Faculty's Graduate Seminar in Eighteenth-Century and Romantic Studies will host a two-day conference on satire and visual arts in the long eighteenth century. We invite academic paper proposals from graduate students and post-docs that explore this theme from a literary or interdisciplinary perspective and may focus on any aspect of the period.
Papers may consider but are not limited to: - Satire of individuals, institutions or society and its role in poetry, prose (either factual or fictional), or drama - Visual arts, print culture, and forms of visual representation - Visual satire or the relationship between any of the above
We welcome papers from a variety of arts and humanities disciplines (historians, art historians etc.) and submissions need not be limited to students of English Literature.
Papers should last no more than 20 minutes. Proposals should take the form of a 500-word abstract, to be submitted by 3rd April 2009 at noon.
Please e-mail abstracts as a Word attachment, along with your university affiliation and contact information including e-mail and postal address, to Caitlin Hanley, email@example.com.
