Shadow of the Precursor

Conference Theme ...

Many writers are affected by an anxious and ambiguous relationship with precursor writers. The role that influence and intertextuality plays in literary production invites interrogation, and this conference hopes to explore the range of conscious and unconscious influences informing relations between writers and their precursors. We call for papers that revolve around intertextual influence, ranging across the spectrum from conscious imitation and intentional allusion, to Julia Kristeva's idea of intertextuality. Do all texts contain references to and even quotations from other texts? Do such references help shape how we read?

The Call for Papers has now closed.

Please direct queries to Nena Bierbaum.
