2014 Conference"Victorian Violence" | Detroit, Michigan, April 11-13
The Midwest Victorian Studies Association will hold its 2014 annual conference in Detroit, Michigan, April 11-13, 2014. Papers are sought for topics related to Victorian violence. Contributions may consider any aspect of physical conflict or resistance and its representations in art, music, history, or literature: violence in the army, the colonies, the prisons, the streets, the workplace, the family, the home, and even the animal kingdom. Papers on resistance to violence—such as anti-vivisection or the British anti-war movement—are also appropriate, as are talks on indirect and systemic forms of violence. We are planning a collection of essays based on the conference.
Send a 300-word abstract and 1-page vita (both as MWord documents) by October 31, 2013, to email@example.com. Even if you do not submit a paper, please plan to attend!
