Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association

In the rapidly expanding field of neo-Victorian studies, the million-dollar question remains: what qualifies as neo-Victorian? For guidance, many scholars have relied on Ann Heilmann and Mark Llewellyn's definition, which specifies that to be called neo-Victorian, a text "must in some respect be self-consciously engaged with the act of (re)interpretation, (re)discovery and revision concerning Victorians." The implication is that this is a subgenre for respectable texts, of clear intellectual pedigree.

For its 2016 meeting, the College English Association invites papers and panels that explore the literary, the rhetorical, the pedagogical, and the professional "creations" of our fields.

To create, to study the creation of others and thus re-create in various manifestations of potential meaning, to be a creator of a text or meaning or environment, to stimulate creativity or creation in others -- creation is at the heart of what we do.

We encourage presentations in the related areas of True Crime and Law & Literature, focusing on the role or act of creation in these fields.
