[UPDATE] "From Here to Modernity: New Perspectives on Victorian Sensation Fiction," NeMLA (April 7-10, 2011), Rutgers University

Tuesday, August 24, 2010 - 2:10pm
full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA), Hosted by Rutgers U, New Brunswick, NJ

There has been a historic tide of scholarship arguing the merits of classic Victorian Sensation texts such as The Woman in White and Lady Audley's Secret . While scholars from Oliphant to Ruskin have added valuable interpretations to the genre by focusing on its Gothic and Romance origins, contemporary critics such as Cvetkovich and Daly have begun probing the frames that closely link Victorian sensation novels to Modernity. This panel will examine the ways in which Victorian Sensation Fiction interacted with Modernity. How did the genre respond to the plethora of late 19th century Parliamentary activity? In what ways did sensation fiction challenge or reflect evolving ideas about gender and identity?
