CFP — GOTHIC DREAMS/GOTHIC NIGHTMARES
Scholars working in any area of Romanticism are invited to submit proposals for the 2020 meeting of the International Conference on Romanticism to be hosted by Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri from October 22-24. The conference theme this year is "Romantic Confluences."
While we encourage a broad interpretation of this theme, some possible approaches include the following:
Geography and Spatiality
Travel and River Studies
Please join us in Charlotte, NC October 23-24 2020 for the 49th annual Victorians Institute Conference. This conference seeks essays that explore how Victorians saw their world, how they depicted what they saw, and the ways that modern scholars, in turn, see the Victorians. Papers or panels on poetry, prose, nonfiction, biography, digital humanities, or visual art are welcome, as are presentations on the pedagogy and ethics of teaching Victorian literature in 2020.

What is Mythmoot VII?
Mythmoot VII, with the theme of “Defying and Defining Darkness,” combines an academic conference, creative writing meet-up, and fan convention for a unique experience. Here at Mythmoot, we have room for serious scholarship in fields such as science fiction, high fantasy, horror, gothic, mythology, children’s literature, folklore.. .the list goes on. We also appreciate less academic, but no less enthusiastic, pursuits of all the above—such as demonstrations of how to knit the best fake candle ever, presentations theorizing the exact recipe for Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder, or papers dissecting the cultural background of Baron Harkonnen!
