Victorian Network and King's College London

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

From other lands to other planets to other dimensions, the nineteenth-century imagination thrived on the idea of 'elsewhere'. Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity. Other Worlds seeks to explore the many ways in which Victorians looked beyond their quotidian spheres to imagined alternatives. We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.

Oregon Medieval English Literature Society (OMELS)
contact email: 

From Chaucer's Theseus to the popular heathen knight Ferumbras the character type of righteous heathen captured the imagination of audiences in medieval England. Using heathen characters that ranged from Greek emperors to Muslim knights, authors sought to represent a variety of concerns. In this way, the righteous heathen became a critical (or propagandistic) space for such broad projects as: defining nationality, developing cultural and historical relationships with the Roman Empire and thinking through complex eschatological problems. Broadly, this panel discussion will examine the use of the righteous heathen character in English literature.

Call for Chapter Proposals

We invite chapter proposals of 500 words for the volume with the working title, Women's Ethos: Intersections of Rhetorics and Feminisms. Women's Ethos seeks contributions that examine women's and feminist ethos as rhetorical praxis. Rejecting a singular, isolated notion of ethos, we characterize ethos as intersubjective and constructed. Women's Ethos considers anew the inventive ways diverse women and other minorities have constructed, currently embody, and might imagine ethos in the future.

Papers looking at music in dramas from the early middle ages through the sixteenth century are welcome. Email Katherine Steele Brokaw with an abstract by August 15, 2013.
