Call for papers

We invite papers to explore the spaces, habits and discourses of social and anti-social drinking. Speakers may discuss representations of drinking practices, drunks and drunkenness in fiction, theatre, periodicals, medical literature, art and the wider culture, and the afterlives of nineteenth-century drinking. We are open to international influence – rum, vodka, curaçao and absinthe are as welcome intellectual stimulation as British beer, whisky and gin.

Abstracts (300 words max.) should be sent to Pam Lock ( by 16 December 2013.
