Neo-Victorian Studies is currently soliciting scholarly and creative work for its 2012/13 general issue. The editors welcome articles from established and early career scholars and creative artists on any topic related to the exploration of nineteenth-century legacies from twentieth/twenty-first-century perspectives. We encourage papers that push the understanding or cultural memory of the 'Victorian' beyond its usual temporal and geographical boundaries, investigating the politics of memorialisation, appropriation, adaptation and revision within inter-disciplinary frameworks and across multimedia.
This panel seeks papers that explore the parameters of neo-Victorian literature from a variety of historical, formal, or theoretical approaches. Questions addressed might include (but are certainly not limited to) the following:
Digital Shakespeares: Innovations, Interventions, Mediations
A Special Issue of The Shakespearean International Yearbook
Edited by Hugh Craig and Brett D. Hirsch
If data is "the next big idea in language, history and the arts", as Patricia Cohen has suggested, where are we now in Shakespeare studies? Are we being "digital" yet?
Early Modern Contemporary
Browning waxed Shakespearean; Eliot got metaphysical; Rich composed her own valediction. How, then, has recent poetry engaged the early modern imaginary--its politics and materialities, its new science and old weather, its generic conventions and characters.
Submission requirements: 250-word abstracts from critics and/or poets. Depending on the number of submissions, this might be either a round-table or a panel session.
Deadline for submissions: 17 March 2012
