Reminder: Neo-Victorian Networks: Epistemologies, Aesthetics and Ethics (Abstracts due Feb 1, 2012)

updated: 
Monday, January 9, 2012 - 10:16am
University of Amsterdam

This conference, to be held June 13-15, 2012, seeks to assess the state of contemporary neo-Victorian literature, film, television and other media, with papers offering new readings of neo-Victorian texts. The conference also seeks to interrogate the critical field surrounding the notion of the neo-Victorian by asking how we, as scholars, understand this genre and its allied politics. Does the current cultural interest in the "new Victorian" imply a resistance to post-modernism, post-structuralism or post-humanism? Or, can neo-Victorianism help us interrogate these terms? How does our post-Victorian landscape accommodate and manipulate the neo-Victorian urge?
