The Organizers of the Sixth International Melville Society Conference plan to compile the conference proceedings into two volumes in English (one addressing issues related to philosophy and theory, the other literary and cultural history) and one in Polish. The composition of each of the books will depend on the subjects of the submissions sent to the Publication Selection Committee.
The books are planned to be published by the University of Silesia Press and will be reviewed by international experts in Melville and Conrad studies. The publication cycle usually lasts one year; we may therefore expect the books to be available in the year 2009.
