Political Violence at Home and Abroad
Seminar Leader: Professor Bill Meier, Department of History, Texas Christian University

Violence harnessed to political programmes mushroomed in the 19th century alongside the growth of '-isms': socialism, conservatism, trade unionism, nationalism, terrorism, anarchism, and the like. Yet the distinction between "ordinary" crime and "political" crime was a blurry one, and governments, police, journalists, even "political criminals" themselves attributed divergent meanings to their menacing behavior.

Sensational Violence: "The Mysteries Which Are at Our Own Doors"
Seminar Leader: Professor Lisa Surridge, Department of English, University of Victoria

In his review of sensation fiction in The Nation (1865), Henry James wrote that "to Mr. Collins belongs the credit of having introduced into fiction those mysterious of mysteries, the mysteries which are at our own doors." James's remark captures the sensation novel's capacity to surveil, strip, and probe domestic spaces, lives, and even bodies.

Call for Proposals - New Series from Ashgate Publishing Company - Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - 3:31pm
Ashgate Publishing Company

Outlaws in Literature, History, and Culture examines the nature, function, and context of the outlaw and the outlawed - people, spaces, practices - in the pre-modern world, and in its modern representations. By its nature, outlawry reflects not only the outlawed, but the forces of law which seek to define and to contain it. Throughout the centuries, a wide and ever-changing, and yet ever familiar, variety of outlaw characters and narratives have captured the imagination of audiences both particular and general, local and global.
