Conference: Women Writing Pleasure, 3 July 2015

We are thrilled to announce that LJMU English will be hosting a one-day conference on "Women Writing Pleasure" on 3 July 2015. Focusing on all genres of women's writing from the nineteenth century through to the present day, the event will facilitate discussion on the numerous ways in which women writers have conceptualised, described, and engaged with various forms of pleasure, from the intellectual to the sexual, from the material to the psychological, and beyond. The conference is co-organised by PhD researchers Chloe Holland and Krystina Osborne and by Dr Nadine Muller. To read the call for papers, download the conference poster, and more information about the event, please visit the dedicated conference website at http://www.womenwritingpleasure.com....
