CFP: [Victorian] SCMLA 2009––Special Session: Oscar Wilde: History, Sexuality, and Displacement

updated: 
Monday, December 15, 2008 - 8:22pm
Daniel A. Novak

In recent decades, Oscar Wilde has been theorized as a figure who
represented a historical shift or a displacement in how we think of
identity, gender, and sexuality. This panel invites papers that interrogate
these critical assumptions, broadly addressing Wilde's own thinking about
the relationship between history and identity. Papers may also focus on the
critical reception of Wilde from the early 20th century to the present.

This is a special session for the SCMLA 2009 conference in Baton Rouge, LA.
The theme of the conference is "Continuity and Displacement." A panel will
be chosen by February 20 and selected panels will be announced by March 2009.
