GAFIS (Graduate Association of French & Italian Students), University of Wisconsin-Madison

Illusion is commonly defined as a false idea or belief, often the product of misperception or deception, intentional or otherwise. Its etymological basis in the Latin verb illudere reveals an element of mockery that is evidently lost in the modern connotation of illusion and yet remains, arguably, in that intriguing phase of disillusion that often follows it. How does one distinguish illusion from reality? How do our evolving perceptions of the world around us affect our understanding of self and the human condition? Is disillusion a necessary evil, or an essential part of this understanding as it leads to new possibilities for development and discovery?

Sunday, September 23, 2012 - 4:39pm
Panel for MVSA Conference--deadline: October 15, 2012

Born into a family of evangelical Protestantism that she would later renounce, George Eliot exemplifies Victorian England's increasing tensions between religious claims and secular doubts. This panel for the Midwest Victorian Studies Association (MVSA) will examine the works of George Eliot and the ways in which her writings reflect the era's debates on the validity of religion. In particular, the panel will explore the ways in which Eliot invokes the notions of liberation and assimilation in her works.
