Nineteenth-century Women Writers Reviewed invites applications for editorial board members.
NCWWR is a digital documentary edition, dedicated to recovering the 'lost' critical reception of women writers in the 19C. NCWWR collects artifacts of women writers published from 1789-1900 appearing in British and American periodicals: these artifacts include reviews, extracts of prose and poetry, tributes, advertisements, notices of publication, and references. Then, using an Omeka database, our editorial team transcribes, edits, annotates and codes these artifacts in TEI/XML. NCWWR expands on Romantic Women Writers Reviewed, a 9-volume print series published between 2011-13 by Pickering and Chatto.
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to submit presentations for a conference that explores, challenges, and re-imagines the concept of identity.
This conference will allow students to present on a variety of issues and themes related to identity. Identity, in this context, can refer to an individual or group and comprises various registers—including race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexuality, nationality, ability, religion, political affiliation, etc. Also, identity can be explored in multiplicity: considering how certain identities impact others.
Keynote Speaker: Professor Abdulrazak Gurnah from University of Kent
This panel explores SAMLA 87's theme of "literature and the other arts" through the unique dynamic of word-image interaction situated in the poet-artist collaboration.

By May 15, 2015, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Anne Keefe, University of North Texas, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.
