Gothic Afterlives: Radcliffe’s Literary Precursors, Rivals, and Descendants

(Proposed special session for the 2017 NASSR conference)

Since the mid-1990s, a number of studies have not only extended the years that “Romanticism” encompasses as a literary and cultural period but also suggested that classic gothic literature (1764-1824) holds a significant place within Romantic studies. Thanks to presses like Broadview and Valancourt, a host of classic gothic novels by Clara Reeve, Sophia Lee, Charlotte Smith, William Godwin, Regina Maria Roche, Charlotte Dacre, Percy Shelley, and others that were once out of print and available only in special collections are now easily accessible.

CFP George Gissing and Born in Exile

 

2017 celebrates the 125th anniversary of Gissing’s Born in Exile (1892), a novel that addresses so many crises of faith—in religion, science, marriage, and class, for instance—in the nineteenth century. In celebration, we invite contributions for proposed panels on Gissing and Born in Exile in the Annual Literary London Society Conference, held on 13-14 July 2017, at the Institute of English Studies in the University of London. Papers may explore any aspect of Gissing’s writing but they must speak to the conference’s focus: “Fantastic London: Dream, Speculation and Nightmare.” Papers might address:

Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery - Extended Deadline

updated: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 6:54pm
The Acacia Group, California State University, Fullerton
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

The Acacia Group invites submissions both academic and creative from all disciplines for this year’s conference “Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery” at California State University, Fullerton on March 17th-18th, 2017.

This conference seeks to find the lost voices of marginalized groups, scholarship that is “just a student paper,” identity in an age of technology, and connections between seemingly disparate experiences. Ultimately, we are looking for work that explores what is lost and what is found through our interaction with texts (which includes literary texts as well as performative, cinematic, social media, and other forms of textuality). What is lost? What is found? What happens now that it is lost/found?
