Symbiosis – A Journal of Transatlantic Literary and Cultural Relations
The 12th Biennial Symbiosis Conference, 2019:
A Symbiosis and University of Dundee Event
Venue: University of Dundee, Scotland, UK
Dates: Thursday 11th to Sunday 14th July, 2019
As ever, we welcome paper and panel proposals on all areas of Transatlantic literary exchange.
There will be two special themes: Transatlantic Herman Melville and George Eliot (celebrating the 200th anniversary of their births) and Transatlantic Detective Fiction.
Symbiosis was launched in 1997 to address the artificial divide between literatures in English on either side of the Atlantic, a divide recognized by few creative writers but institutionalized in the modern academic community. The journal is uniquely concerned with studies of transatlantic literary and cultural relations between the British Isles and the Americas. It remains interested in all genres, all theoretical approaches and all periods from the beginnings of both a transnational and Anglophone America to the present.
"Symbiosis stands alone as the journal of transatlantic literatures in English, and thus helpfully monopolizes a huge, still-evolving area of cultural interest. Symbiosis is unique and compelling." Robert Weisbuch, author of Atlantic Double-Cross: American Literature and British Influence in the Age of Emerson (1989).
