Call for Papers: "Of Queen's Gardens": Victorian Ecofeminism
This panel invites ecofeminist readings of Victorian literature
(novels, poetry, prose), wherein women are frequently given "natural" traits or are associated with the earth. Ecofeminist interpretations may highlight the damaging consequences of this link, or celebrate women's potential to reform cultural/environmental attitudes because of it. In what ways does the woman/nature link function in Victorian literature? What do these interpretations reveal about Victorian
attitudes about gender and the environment, and the treatment of each?
Please e-mail abstracts of 300-500 words to Margaret Kennedy,

In 2012, a year-long programme of events in Lancaster and the surrounding area will mark the 400th anniversary of the trial and execution of the first group of Lancashire Witches. A second trial occurred in 1634 and although pardoned, the accused were re-imprisoned in Lancaster Castle. The case of the Lancashire Witches and their supposed crimes interwove fact and fiction, local hostilities and more exotic ideas of witches' sabbats that were usually associated with continental witchcraft. They became a cause célèbre, like the witches of Trier and Fulda (Germany), Torsåker (Sweden) and Salem (North America).
This panel seeks submissions on the idea of the moving image, broadly considered. Papers might investigate the different ways in which the moving image has come to define 20th century culture through film, literature, visual art, and other media. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Movement of images in 3-D space (eg, the re-proliferation of 3-D film)
The cinematic novel
Viral internet media
