Conference - Maria Edgeworth 250
6-8th of December 2018. Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin
To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Maria Edgeworth, we call for papers that respond to her life and writing across its full range and scope. As well as papers that address Edgeworth’s innovative writing for the young, her essays on education and her ambitious and original novels, we also invite contributions that discuss the wider intellectual, social and political world of the Edgeworth family.
Please send abstracts of 250-300 words by 13th April to email@example.com.
