CFP: Ceræ Inaugural Conference

The Ceræ inaugural virtual conference, held over 26–27 April 2024 and organised around the theme of Metamorphosis, Transformation, and Transmutation, is just under two months away, and the committee has been busy planning a varied programme from the submissions we have already received. However, in order to provide ample opportunity for scholars at all stages of their research career to attend and present their research to an international audience, they are pleased to announce that they have extended the Call for Papers by an extra 2 WEEKS only.


Please email your submission for a 20-minute (+ 10 minutes Q&A) presentation to, including:

  • a 150–200 word abstract,
  • your academic affiliation and title (if any),
  • a short 50-100 word biography,
  • the time-zone from which you will be presenting.

Cerae is also please to announce the two keynote speakers for the conference, Associate Professor Alexandre Roberts from the University of Southern California Dornsife, and Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor of English Stephanie Trigg from the University of Melbourne. Further details on our keynotes can be found on the website.

The conference will be held entirely online, via Zoom, and all sessions will be recorded and made available on the website for a limited time after the conference has concluded to allow for continued discussion. To ensure that the conference is accessible to all scholars, regardless of financial position, there will be a nominal attendance fee of approximately $5-10 AUD (the final amount yet to be finalised by the committee). 100% of the proceeds from the conference will directly contribute to the ongoing operational costs of the journal to help in their commitment to remain fully independent and open-access.
