Millennial Texts: Creation and Reception

This call for papers comes from Kenneth Newport at Liverpool Hope University College:
Call for papers

Millennial Texts: Creation and Reception
Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, 12-15 September 2005

Dr John Walliss (Liverpool Hope University College) and the Revd Professor Kenneth Newport (Liverpool Hope University College) are organising an international colloquium on the theme of 'Millennial Texts: Creation and Reception'. The colloquium will be held in Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, between 12-15 September 2005.

The organisers would welcome papers on the creation and reception of millennial texts, broadly understood to be anything that can be 'read'. Texts could therefore be film, music, as well as literary in nature.

The papers from the 2004 colloquium, which was held at Trinity College, Dublin, are to be published under the title Contemporary Millennialism: Visions of the End in Historical Context (Baylor University Press, forthcoming) and the organisers are confident that a volume from this colloquium will also be forthcoming. To expedite this process, participants should be prepared to submit the full text of an 8,000-10,000-word article during the colloquium itself.

Participants will be provided with two nights of accommodation in Ripon College, and will receive an invitation to the conference dinner. The organisers are unable, however, to cover travel expenses.

If you are interested in participating, please send a 200-word abstract to John Walliss ( in an email with the title 'Millennial conference' by 30 April 2005.

Lecturer in Sociology,
