SRS 10th Biennial Conference

Liverpool, with selected sessions online, July 19, 2023 - July 22, 2023
Deadline for submission/application: September 1, 2022


The topic for the tenth SRS Biennial Conference is ‘Difficult Pasts‘; it will open in Liverpool on the evening of Wednesday 19 July 2023 with the SRS Annual Lecture (Dr Islam Issa), and close on Saturday 22 July 2023. While we anticipate the majority of the conference to be delivered in-person, all plenary sessions will be livestreamed to remote delegates. Unfortunately, it is not possible to stream the in-person parallel sessions, but we will do our best to accommodate remote participation through having one session per each parallel session delivered online.  The deadline for proposals to be submitted via the website is Tuesday, 1 September 2022, 11.59pm BST. We anticipate communicating decisions on submissions by Friday 28 October 2022.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

  • Herman L. Bennett (CUNY)

  • Islam Issa (Birmingham City University)

  • Carmen Fracchia (Birkbeck, University of London)

  • Patricia Palmer (Maynooth University)
