Each year, the Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites three scholars in the early stages of their careers to present twenty-minute papers on their current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography as members of a panel at the BSA's Annual Meeting, which takes place in New York City in late January.  The New Scholars Program seeks to promote the work of scholars who are new to the field of bibliography, broadly defined to include any research that deals with the creation, production, publication, distribution, reception, transmission, and subsequent history of texts as material objects (print or manuscript).  Those selected for the panel receive $600 toward the cost of attending the Annual Meeting and a complimentary one-year membership

Gendered Ecologies and Nineteenth-Century Women Writers

If ecology is without nature, as Timothy Morton provocatively argued in 2007, then one may wonder of ecology without the feminine as a corollary. For nature, much like the feminine, has been fetishized, exoticized, and romanticized as a signifier emptied out—a sort of lacuna. If we can be at ease with the gap, vacancy, or interval and, perhaps, theorize about the unfilled space while sorting out the inconsistencies of what it means to represent nature, the feminine, and androgyny, then we might begin to trace the valuable contributions of 19th-century women writers to the development of the term oecologia coined by Ernst Haeckel in 1866 and beyond.

Many analyses of Victorian empire focus on India and Africa, yet the British empire also expanded to many parts of Oceania, both directly and indirectly. The papers in this session will examine cultural texts that explore relationships between Victorian empire and Oceania. This session especially welcomes essays that make connections between Victorian empire and Hawai'i.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by June 26, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

CFP: Repurposing 19th Century American Literature for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

The panel will consider the social capital created by connecting non-traditional students with iconic 19th century American texts. What does it mean when a 1st generation Latina from Boyle Heights tells you that Maria Cummins' The Lamplighter is her favorite novel? What does it mean when a diverse group of first year students sees Walden as a tool for creating the educational experience they desire rather than one that is proscribed for them? What does it mean to teach Moby Dick to Dream Act students in the Age of the 45th?

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."

For the NeMLA 49th Annual Convention, April 12-15, 2018, in Pittsburgh, this session is seeking proposals exploring new approaches to Hopkins’s poetry consistent with the theme of NeMLA 2018, Global Spaces, Local Landscapes, and Imagined Worlds. Papers should explore poems and other writings by Hopkins that engage the apocalyptic, imagined worlds, urban and rural landscapes (seascapes and skyscapes), including but not limited to topics such as nature and naturalism, natural theology, the environment, sustainability, science, and Darwinism. Please submit your proposal on NeMLA site @ http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/callforpapers/submit.html
