The tenth annual conference of the British Society for Literature and Science (BSLS) will take place at the University of Liverpool on 16-18 April 2015. Keynote talks will be given by Professor Keith Barnham (Imperial College London), Dr Patricia Fara (University of Cambridge), and Dr Claire Preston (Queen Mary University of London).
The BSLS invites proposals for twenty-minute papers, or panels of three papers, on any subjects within the field of literature and science. However, proposals addressing the themes of light, optics, vision and colour, and proposals for papers, panels or roundtables on engaging the public with literature and science research are particularly welcome. In addition, ‘flash talks’ of up to 7 minutes on any topic are invited for a special plenary session. Deadline for submissions is 5 December 2014.
Conference delegates will need to register as members of the BSLS but the conference fee will be waived for two graduate students in exchange for written reports on the conference, to be published in the BSLS Newsletter.
