Fashioning the Unconventional Victorian: Conduct, Costume, Coiffure

Despite a rich scholarship on Victorian dress culture, the idiosyncratic in Victorian costume often remains marginal in the criticism. This panel examines how fashion – original, unusual, peculiar, or even outlandish – preoccupied the Victorian cultural imagination. Papers might investigate eccentric fashion’s role in specific genres; its portrayal in the Victorian periodic press, advertising, or conduct manuals; the bachelor girl’s or the dandy’s nonconformity in attire; dress as gender or status markers; how costume determines, camouflages, or liberates; the fin-de-siècle aesthete’s couture; ways the outré became a normatively modish for the middle-class Victorian consumer.

ACLA 2017: Queering the Law: Dialogues on Justice, Transgression and Optimism

In the context of events such as the recent upsurge in police violence in the US, the rhetoric surrounding the influx of refugees in Europe, and ongoing violence that targets queer communities, this seminar poses the question of justice in relation to the concept of queerness. What questions do alternative structures of political, social and romantic organizing pose to normative social forms? Does justice reside in forms of re-, and counter-alignment, or in the very questioning of the idea of alignment? In other words, how can we read performances and experiences of eccentricity as modes of destabilizing the L/law?

Encyclopaedic fictions are being studied increasingly comparatively: with such studies as Hilary Clark’s The Fictional Encyclopaedia (1990), Franco Moretti’s Modern Epic (1996), Stefano Ercolino’s The Maximalist Novel (2014), and Paul St. Amour’s Tense Future (201 5), as well as forthcoming studies like Nick Levey’s Maximalism in Contemporary American Literature (2016) and Antonio Barrenechea’s America Unbound (2016), critical attention has turned to assessing the commonalities between these daunting, ambitious, totalising texts—and away from single-author approaches.
