The Tenth Nordic Conference for English Studies will be hosted by the English Department of the University of Bergen, Norway, in May 2007. Details of the conference will be posted as they become available on the conference web site at http://www.naes.uib.no/

Scholars in all areas of English Studies will be invited to submit proposals for papers or posters to be presented at the conference. Papers will be presented at thematically organised parallel sessions and at workshops on specific topics. Each presenter will be allocated 30 minutes, including time for questions and discussion. (We recommend that papers/presentations last 20 minutes, freeing the rest of the time for discussion.) The following themes have already been proposed as panel topics: History of the English Language, Contemporary Poetry, English in New Europe, Sociolinguistics, Embodied Writing, Postcolonial Studies, American Studies and its ''Outsides,'' and Reframing Shakespeare. There is room for many more panels and workshops, and the conference will be organised around the actual papers submitted. For those who prefer to give a visual rather than an oral presentation, there is the option of preparing a display in poster form. Posters will be displayed throughout the conference, and a specific time will be allocated for conference participants to speak to poster presenters.

There will also be plenary sessions with invited speakers on issues of general interest within English studies. The speakers in question, who have confirmed their participation, are the following professors: Sylvia Adamson, Benita Parry, Donald Pease, Robert Philipson and Peter Trudgill.

In addition to the academic programme, there will be a social programme at the conference, including opportunities to see something of Bergen and its beautiful surroundings. Bergen is Norway's second-largest city, with an intimate city centre and a vibrant student life. The city's most prestigious cultural event, the annual Bergen arts festival (Festspillene i Bergen), will be taking place at the time of the conference - and tickets for concerts, plays, etc., should be available if participants enquire a few months in advance.

Bergen has its own airport: Flesland Lufthavn, with direct flights to and from cities like Oslo, Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

A call for papers - and an invitation to submit proposals for panel or workshop themes - will be circulated at a later date.

English Department, University of Bergen, Sydnesplassen 7, 5007 Bergen.
