CFP: Fin de Siècle Seminar, 1870-1920 (UK) (7/1/06; 10/12/06 – 6/30/07)

Fin de Siècle is an interdisciplinary seminar series based at the University of
Oxford which aims to develop fresh perspectives on literature, society, and the
arts in England between 1870 and 1920. In the six years since its inception,
the series has provided a vibrant forum for both graduates and established
academics, hosting presentations on subjects as diverse as the 'Aesthetic
Eighties', Jerome K. Jerome and the rise of the literary professional, Oscar
Wilde and archaeology, trouble-making in George Moore's fiction, Robert
Bridges's classical poetry, and the aesthetics of smell in literature and art.
