General theme: “Aldous Huxley in France: The Experience of Exile”
The general theme of the conference will naturally focus on Huxley’s activities in France, particularly on the experience of exile that Huxley and other writers underwent in Sanary and Bandol between the wars, but there will certainly be room for a variety of other topics.
Huxley Forum: “Aldous Huxley’s Controversial Philosophical Theories”
This forum, which will discuss the intellectual ‘exile’ that Huxley’s ideas were at times exposed to, is being organized by Prof Dana Sawyer (please send your proposals to <firstname.lastname@example.org>). It will be held in a similar fashion as at the previous symposia in Oxford (2013) and Almería (2017). See https://www.uni-muenster.de/Anglistik/Huxley/ahs_conferences.html
Call for Papers:
In addition to the lectures already included in the programme (see Huxley-Toulon) new proposals are cordially invited.
Please send your proposals for lectures (20 minutes, plus 10 minutes discussion) and your abstracts (20 – 30 lines or 200 – 300 words) by 31 July 2021 to Prof Bernfried Nugel email@example.com.
