VICTORIAN BODIES: An International Conference
Hosted by the Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada
The Manteo lakeside resort, Kelowna, British Columbia
Conference dates: April 10-11, 2015
Publication Workshop: April 9 and 12, 2015
The Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada invites proposals for its 2015 conference, "Victorian Bodies." The conference will explore Victorian concepts, representations, and experiences of the body. We invite papers that examine Victorian studies' enduring interest in the body and embodiment, and we look forward to exploring ways in which Victorians engaged with aesthetic, scientific, economic, and moral distinctions among bodies.
