Eleventh International Iris Murdoch Conference

University of Chichester, 30 August -1 September 2024: First Call for Papers

The Eleventh International Conference on Iris Murdoch studies will take place at the University of Chichester in 2024. The conference will showcase ongoing, and published, Murdoch scholarship with a particular focus on Aspirations and Inspirations.

Panels should not be confined by this focus, however, and all researchers currently working on Murdoch’s fiction, philosophy, theology, personal journals, letters and poetry – and/or the political and cultural significance of any of these – are invited to submit proposals. We also welcome papers on Murdoch’s influence on other novelists or philosophers, and panel proposals of three papers linked by a common theme or text.

The Iris Murdoch Collections at Kingston University Archives will be extending its opening hours both before, during and after the conference to accommodate researchers. Bookings should be made in advance to archivist Dayna Miller by emailing archives@kingston.ac.uk

Please forward abstracts of up to 300 words by 31 March 2024, and any enquiries relating to the conference itself, to organisers Dr Miles Leeson and Dr Frances White, at ims@chi.ac.uk

Bookings for the conference, and for the on-site accommodation, will be available in the spring.
