      CULTURE AND THE LITERARY PRIZE

      Oxford Brookes University, UK
      4th 5th October 2003

      Speakers include:
      Pat Barker (Booker Prize Winner)
      James English (University of Pennsylvania)
      John Frow (University of Edinburgh)
      Martyn Goff (Administrator of the Man Booker Prize)
      Hermione Lee (University of Oxford)
      John Sutherland (University College London)

      Conference Organisers:
      Daniel Lea (Department of English) and
      Claire Squires (Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies),
      Oxford Brookes University.

      Since its inception in 1969, the Booker Prize for Fiction has been at the
      forefront of the promotion and reception of literary fiction in the UK, the
      Commonwealth and beyond. This major international conference
      will interrogate the place of the literary prize in contemporary culture
      and coincides with the launch of the Man Booker Prize archive at Oxford
      Brookes University. Papers will explore the production, marketing and
      consumption of contemporary literature and will examine the dynamics of the
      literary prize in relation to the codification of cultural value, the
      formation of cosmopolitan reading communities and the construction of
      national and trans-national identities. Whilst it is anticipated that the
      Booker Prize will be a major focus of critical attention, the conference
      will address prize culture in all its manifestations, both in the UK and
      elsewhere.

      Papers are invited on themes including: the impact of literary prizes on
      the marketing, promotion and sales of contemporary writing; the
      construction of canons and the formation of literary identities; literary
      prizes and cultures of elitism; the place of the literary prize in
      colonial/postcolonial debates; literary prizes and nationality; literary
      prizes and the media; literary prizes and the formation of reading
      communities; literary prize judges and judging; literary prizes and the
      curriculum; literary prizes and literary development projects.

      Please send an abstract (c.250 words) and a brief biographical note by 30
      May 2003, or enquiries for further information, to
