A One Day Symposium at Kingston University (UK)

Plenary Speakers:

Shirley Chew, Leeds University
Gail Low, University of Dundee

This one-day symposium broadly considers questions of identity and
marginalisation in Britain over the last two centuries.  What defines the 
centre and periphery?  Is the notion of the margin determined by
categories such as race, gender, and sexuality, or is it a more
complicated notion?  We encourage participation from people working on a 
variety of media, including literature, film, and art; interdisciplinary 
approaches are welcome.

The conference will run from 10 am to 4.30 pm.  Fees are set at L25, L15 for 
students. The conference will be held at the University's Penrhyn Road site 
in suburuban London.


Prospective panelists are asked to submit abstracts of 250 words for
twenty-minute papers to the organiser by 21 September 1999.
