Pre-Raphaelite Conference

CALL FOR PAPERS: “‘wildering phantasies”: an inter-disciplinary conference devoted to the Pre-Raphaelites, University of Dundee, 7-10 July, 2011

This interdisciplinary conference will bring together researchers from a range of backgrounds to explore the work of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and assess their legacy across several media. The conference will be held in association with the Scottish Word and Image Group, and therefore papers related to the interface between word and image in the work of the PRB’s are particularly welcome. The confirmed plenary speaker is Prof. Leonee Ormond (King’s College, London). Please note: there will be a dedicated panel for post-graduate students. The conference will also include an exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, with sketches taken from Dundee University’s own holdings and the surrounding area. In addition, there will be an opportunity to see D.G. Rossetti’s Dante’s Dream, the finest Pre-Raphaelite painting in Scotland, works by Millais and Joseph Paton at the newly renovated McManus Gallery as well as other Pre-Raphaelite gems, including the recently restored St. Salvador’s church, designed by George Fredrick Bodley. Please submit abstracts of 300 words for 20 minute papers with a brief biography or cv to Dr. Jo. George and Dr. Brian Hoyle no later than 15 January, 2011.

    Calling all post-grad students.
    There will be a dedicated panel for p/g students so if you haven’t presented a paper before this will be a great place to start.
