>Call for papers: Incorporation in Literature
>University of Edinburgh Postgraduate Conference
>
>We invite proposals from postgraduate students for a conference on
>žIncorporation in LiteratureÓ to be held at the University of Edinburgh
>on 8 July 2006.  This conference seeks to address the idea of
>incorporation from a variety of different perspectives.  Incorporation
>is an important theme in many literary works in which eating, drinking,
>digesting, or even cannibalism figure prominently, whether these
>subjects are treated literally or metaphorically.  In a more abstract
>sense, incorporation could also be understood as the way in which one
>work can be incorporated into another as an influence, or as the ways
>in which visual images and other graphic details are incorporated into
>literary texts.  By inviting papers on specific texts or authors in any
>language from any period, this conference seeks to provide a
>comparative exploration of the ways in which incorporation has been
>used in literature.
>
>Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be sent to both conference
>organisers at the addresses below by 31 March.  Papers should be no
>more than 20 minutes long and should be in delivered in English.
