This international conference celebrates 10 years since the formation of
the Katherine Mansfield Society. Since that time there has been a
significant resurgence of scholarly interest in Mansfield, driven by the
Society’s journal Katherine Mansfield Studies, now published annually as a
prestigious yearbook by Edinburgh University Press. The themes covered to
date have been wide-ranging: KM and Continental Europe; KM and Modernism;
KM and the Arts; KM and the Fantastic; KM and the Postcolonial; KM and
World War 1; KM and Translation; KM and Psychology; KM and Russia. The
tenth volume (on the theme of KM and Virginia Woolf) will be published in

In addition to the yearbook, the Society has organised numerous
international conferences, in New Zealand, France, the UK, Slovakia,
Switzerland, and Australia, all of which have fed into this resurgence of
interest in Mansfield. There have also been three major new biographies in
the last ten years: Kathleen Jones’s *Katherine Mansfield: The
Storyteller* (2010),
Gerri Kimber’s *Katherine Mansfield: The Early Years* (2016), and Redmer
Yska’s *A Strange Beautiful Excitement: Katherine Mansfield’s Wellington
1888-1903* (2017).

The time has surely now come, therefore, to reassess Mansfield’s life and
reputation ten years on, in the light of so much new research, and to
consider new directions for future Mansfield studies.

*Registration is now open:*

Dr Aimee Gasston, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
Dr Gerri Kimber, University of Northampton, UK
Professor Janet Wilson, University of Northampton, UK
