Tuesday, September 15, 2015 - 1:42pm
Northeast Modern Language Association Conference, 2016 DUE 9/30

When we explore and critique Latin@ novels, it is a common practice to do so from the perspective of race, class, gender, and colonial identities.

Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association

In the rapidly expanding field of neo-Victorian studies, the million-dollar question remains: what qualifies as neo-Victorian?
