Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."

How to Make a Minority: Nationalism and Identity in the Postcolonial World

While much of the Anglophone world remains transfixed on the rise of the majoritarian right in the United States and Britain, little attention is paid to the nationalist politics that have defined daily existence in states such as Pakistan and India, or Egypt, Turkey and parts of the Middle East through the dialectic of minoritization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This panel is interested in the cultural apparatus—literature, media, museums etc.—that has become indispensable in the making of national identities in the postcolonial state. What are the systems of “social reference,” to use Edward Said’s phrase, that enable the construction of a volk, of the people who constitute the nation?
