THE IMAGE OF ADVENTURE
in Literature, Media, and Society

Fri-Sat, March 8-9, 2019


In honor of the 300th anniversary of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, the theme for 2019 explores the image of ADVENTURE - in culture, literature, philosophy, history, politics, economics, film, television, art, music, social theory, and business.  All interpretive variations of ADVENTURE are invited. All eras and cultures are appropriate.  All aspects of, and contrasts with, ADVENTURE are relevant.  All methodologies welcome. See the CFP for more details. 

Conference proceedings will be published. Attendees receive a hard copy, and a digital copy with ISSN will be hosted in Scholarship & Creative Works @ Digital UNC.

The conference will be held in Greeley's beautiful convention center, the DoubleTree by Hilton Greeley at Lincoln Park.
