I am hoping to round out a panel titled "Rediscovering Victorian Latin America" (or something to this effect). Essentially, it aims to stimulate a current examination of what Latin America means to Victorian studies today via innovative cross-cultural readings of either Victorian literature, periodicals, and cultural products, Latino immigration to the UK, or British colonial settlements in Hispanophone South America/Caribbean. The panel may also possibly reflect upon earlier scholarship in this sub-field (if that is of concern to any participants).

In a 2011 Economist Prospero blog entitled "After the Unthinkable," the effects of 9/11 on literature was compared to those of World War II in that it "will continue to be a marking point." As we approach the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, this panel seeks to move beyond representations of the day itself to explore the various nuances of post-9/11 literature by looking at how the long political and cultural aftermath have left their mark on literary and visual culture.

According to a recent report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly 1.5 million people are incarcerated in the United States. Results from various organizations indicate that people who are incarcerated generally have lower formal education than people who have not been incarcerated. Such findings indicate that regardless of the actual prison sentence a person receives, it becomes a type of life sentence when a lack of education denies full participation in society.
