CFP: Media. Genre. The Generic. – North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA)

October 17-19, 2019, Columbus, OH, USA

NAVSA 2019 invites multiple perspectives on the British nineteenth century – in history, literary criticism, art history, media studies, and more. We welcome a variety of scholars working on the science, medicine, and technologies of the period.

Proposals might directly address the conference theme of media and genre. Alternatively, we offer the theme itself as generic: the conference is open-call on any topic. Submit on any area of research, teaching, or project-building (collaborative, creative, and/or public) that would be of interest to Victorianist scholars.

Our keynote speakers will be director Mike Leigh, whose most recent film is Peterloo (2018), and historian Priya Satia, author of Empire of Guns: The Violent Making of the Industrial Revolution (2018).

The submission deadline is January 28, 2018. Please see the full CFP for more information.
