The call for papers is now open for this year’s Burney conference. The proposal deadline is 31 March 2024. We are offering two prizes for papers presented at the conference, each worth £100: a President’s Prize for students (including post docs) and a Conference Prize for which all speakers are eligible. The theme of the conference is deliberately designed to be open and encompass a variety of approaches, from exploration and travel by members of the Burney family and their circle, to explorations of their lives and friends, literature, music, art, cultural milieu and significance. The full registration fee, including daytime catering, is £140, with a 50% reduction available for students and the precariously employed.
