the Call For Papers of the 42nd International Byron Conference, Paris

4 - 7 July 2016


In 1816, the weather in Europe was dramatically affected by ash flying high around the globe from the remote Tambora volcano in Indonesia, which had erupted the year before. That same year, Byron’s life was as troubled as the climate in Europe. After one year of restless marriage, Byron weathered a domestic storm which disrupted his life, triggered his eventual departure from England, and offered his readers, contemporary and future, a wealth of new poetic works.

11th International Student Byron Conference

23-28 May 2016

Theme: "Byron and the Summer of 1816"

Messolonghi, Greece

The Messolonghi Byron Research Center welcomes proposals for 20-minute papers to be delivered at the 11th International Student Byron Conference, to be held at Messolonghi, May 23-28, 2016. With a focus on the "Haunted Summer" the Byron-Shelley Circle spent on the shores of Lake Geneva in 1816, the conference also hopes to include a short digital humanities workshop, centered on documents housed in the Murray archive of the National Library of Scotland.

We would particularly welcome submissions centering on Byron's works of 1816 (among them Childe Harold's Pilgrimage Canto III, Manfred, "Darkness," The Prisoner of Chillon, and the Alpine Journal), other works begun, written, or inspired at Diodati that summer (such as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, P. B. Shelley's "Mont Blanc" and "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty," and John William Polidori's The Vampyre), 1816 publications that proved influential to the Byron-Shelley circle (Goethe's Faust, Coleridge's Christabel, Lady Caroline Lamb's Glenarvon) or relevant contextual matters (such as post-Waterloo political changes or the global aftereffects of the eruption of Mount Tambora).
