This panel applies a transnational approach, which is interested in links between British Romantic and Victorian authors with American writers such as (but not limited to) William Wordsworth and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Margaret Fuller, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Emily Dickinson, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Walt Whitman, Thomas Carlyle and Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Wordsworth and Henry David Thoreau, etc. Papers will focus on how British writers influenced the form, content, and sensibility of American writers.

Call for Papers
Romantic Ecocriticism invites article length papers that examine the influence of cultural factors on seminal writers from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. For example, William Wordsworth read Gilbert White's The Natural History of Selborne; Samuel Taylor Coleridge derived metaphors from the lectures by Humphrey Davy; Mary Shelley derived the basis for Frankenstein from the vitalism debate initiated by John Abernathy and William Lawrence.
The New Voices Planning Committee is proud to announce that we are now accepting proposals for the 2015 New Voices Conference. This year's annual conference will be held winter 2015 at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia, and will feature papers, panels, workshops, creative writing readings, and speakers related to our annual theme, which is as follows.
Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.

The Romance of Sidney and Spenser
This seminar explores how Sidney and Spenser engage with and develop the romance framework alongside and against their contemporaries. How do these poets revise, contest, or maintain conventions of romance in their own works? How do they represent and reconcile the genre's tendency toward contradiction, conflation, and multiplicity? How do they influence later authors and contribute to the evolution of the genre and its concerns in the English tradition?
