"UP-TO-DATE WITH A VENGEANCE": NINETEENTH-CENTURY SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND MEDIA
APRIL 19-21, 2007, UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-KANSAS CITY
22ND ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY NINETEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES CONFERENCE (INCS)

Inspired by Bram Stoker's innovative narrative forms and themes in Dracula-—and in particular by Jonathan Harker's statement in his journal that he is witnessing the "nineteenth-century up-to-date with a vengeance"--this conference will explore the thoroughly modern forms of communication, technological development, and scientific discovery that emerged in the period.

The American Studies Graduate Committee at the University of Texas at Austin calls for papers for
its upcoming graduate conference, "The American Environment: Within and Without," to be held in
Austin on September 28-29, 2006.

"Environment" is a term which invites myriad interpretations in varied contexts. Our conference
theme urges participants to explore the American environment both inside and across these
different contexts. We encourage the consideration of all types of environments, including the
musical, literary, religious, political, psychological, natural, built, social, and transnational,
and those which merge or transcend these types.
