Following the conference co-organized between the University of Angers and Edge Hill University on The Figure of the Author in the Short Story in English April 2011, a special double issue of Short Fiction in Theory and Practice (co-edited with the Journal of the Short Story in English) is out now.
The 13th International Conference on the Short Story in English, (15*)16 to 19 July, 2014, Vienna, Austria.
Theme: Unbraiding the Short Story
This conference will bring writers of fiction in English (Irish, British, American, Canadian, Australian, Caribbean, South-African, Indian, Sri Lankan, Indonesian, etc.) and writers who have had (or will have for this event) their work translated into English together with scholars of the short story, and all will join in reading sessions, roundtable discussions and panels, and translation workshops.
The European Network for Short Fiction Research was created as a joint initiative of researchers at Edge Hill University (U.K.) and the CRILA research group (UPRES EA 4639), Université d’Angers, France. Our broad aim is to provide a forum and resources for European-based researchers, and to stimulate further research, both theoretical and practice-based.
