CFP for the Writing England Conference

We are delighted to open a CFP for the Writing England Conference to
be held in Leicester, 28-30 April 2010. After the success of the
Writing England Conference in 2007, we have expanded the temporal
remit of the conference to exchange ideas about manuscript studies,
material culture, multilingualism in texts and books, book history,
readers, audience and scribes at the heart of the medieval period.

Confirmed speakers: Elaine Treharne (Florida State University),
Jocelyn Wogan-Browne (University of York) and Tony Edwards (De
Montfort University, Leicester).


We welcome paper proposals from scholars working on writers, book
production and use of, and responses to texts in Latin, Insular
French and English from the eleventh to the fourteenth-century.
Please send a title and abstract (maximum 150 words) for a 20-minute
paper, by 30 October 2009, with your contact details, to Dr Orietta
Da Rold, School of English, The University of Leicester, University
Road, Leicester, LE1 7RH. E.:; T.: 0116 252 2778.

I'd be very grateful if you could distribute the CFP as widely as possible.
