*NVSA solicits submissions for its annual conference; the topic this year is SYSTEMS AND ARCHIVES.* The conference will take place at the University of Maryland: April 15-17, 2011. The keynote speakers will be: Bernard Lightman, Paul Saint-Amour, and Catherine Robson.
How did the nineteenth century conceive, construct, and represent the physical world? In what ways did nature as an ideology and/or material reality shape the nineteenth century? How did the nineteenth century understand the relation of human beings to nature?
The 2011 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference invites proposals that investigate any aspect of this topic from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature, History, Science, Art History, Environmental Studies, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Music, Economics, and Theology.
Topics may include (but are not limited to):
• human nature
• animal nature
• plant nature
Due to a thinner-than-expected stack of submissions for our "19th Century British Literature" call for papers, we have decided to expand this issue into a general issue. Papers on British topics will receive preference, and will be placed in a seperate section. If you are working on interesting, well-written essays in any Language or Literature fields, please send us the submission, as soon as possible, hopefully before our October 30th deadline. We have begun the peer-review process, and plan to publish the issue in December 2010. Please send a query to the Editor, Anna Faktorovich (Instructor, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania), if you have questions about your idea.
