Just been informed about this Call for Papers.
Could be fun for academics and fans alike:

Jeanette Winterson: A Critical Exploration

University of Leeds, June 17th – 19th 2011

Contemporary, controversial and complex, Jeanette Winterson’s writings remain some of the most studied and significant of the late-twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Characterised by variety and experiment, her fictional oeuvre remains an outstanding literary achievement. Notable for their intricate fusing of symbolism and realism and deliberate mixing of generic forms, Winterson’s writings speak in fascinating ways to a vital and diverse range of preoccupations within contemporary British fiction and beyond.

This conference seeks papers on any aspects of Winterson’s work.

Submissions are welcomed from research students and established academics.
Topics may include but are by no means limited to:
Jeanette Winterson and storytelling.
Jeanette Winterson and the body.
Jeanette Winterson and friends: influences and the influenced.
Jeanette Winterson, the temporal and the spatial.
Jeanette Winterson, language and desire.
Jeanette Winterson and genre.
Jeanette Winterson and gender, sexuality and identity

We will be pursuing various publishing outputs related to the conference.

Send abstracts (no more than 250 words) for proposed 20 minute papers by 31st January 2011 to Martyn.Colebrook_at_english.hull.ac.uk and Sam Francis – engswf_at_leeds.ac.uk Please mark the subject of your email " Jeanette Winterson: A Critical Exploration". Proposals for comprised panels of three speakers are also welcome.

Amber you should submit something...I guess it would be interesting to read and I will not deny that I have read and own lots of critical work on JW BUT isn't this vest of pockets for discussion something that needs to be built on... I think I could have suggested one or two new areas :idea:
