CFP: Sarah Hall’s Fiction, Univ. of Leuven, Belgium, 16-17 May 2018. Abstracts due 19 Jan.

Sarah Hall published her first novel, Haweswater, in 2002. Since then she has developed into one of the UK’s most protean and quietly acclaimed writers, preoccupied by wild(er)ness, female sexuality and the deep connection between language, landscape and the body. This two-day conference seeks to develop the scholarly conversation surrounding Hall’s work through an intensive focus on her short stories and novels. It will be attended and feature a reading by Sarah Hall herself, and papers delivered at the conference will be considered for inclusion in an edited collection to be published in Gylphi’s ‘Contemporary Writers’ series.
