The call for papers for ‘W.T. Stead: Centenary Conference for a Newspaper Revolutionary’ ends this Friday, 20 May 2011. Stead was the most famous Englishman to die on board the Titanic. This conference will be held at the British Library, 16-17 April 2012 (the centenary of both Stead’s death and the sinking) to discuss his life, his diverse interests, his contributions to the newspaper and periodical press, and the period more broadly.
