There’s now just two weeks until the deadline for next term’s Abstract! The theme for the Autumn of 2012 is ‘Responsibilities’ and you have until the 31st July to submit a short abstract (or just a line or two).
Here are some quotes to get your creative juices going:
‘The time is out of joint. O cursed spite / That ever I was born to set it right!’ William Shakespeare
‘What, if anything, is our social responsibility as poets? For what is poetry answerable?’ Robert Pinsky
‘We could not persuade the beloved prince, protector of the realm, by any counsel not to approach the gold’s guardian, to let him lie where he had done for long, dwell in his home till the world’s end; he held onto his high destiny.’ Beowulf
‘There is no such thing as collective guilt or collective innocence; guilt and innocence make sense only if applied to individuals.’ Hannah Arendt
‘In dreams begins responsibility.’ W.B. Yeats
Please not that the theme is only a suggestion – feel free to send a proposal (even a few lines!) for a paper which simply complements your research interests.
And don’t forget the deadline is 31st July, just a few weeks away!!!
