Rural Geographies of Gender and Space, Britain 1840-1920

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - 11:00am
Dr Charlotte Mathieson and Dr Gemma Goodman, University of Warwick

Whilst discussions of gender and space in the nineteenth to early-twentieth century have typically focused on "women and the city", rural spaces offer equally productive contexts for exploring the intersections between gender and space in this period. As the socio-spatial relations of the country are impacted by the move into modernity, rural environments are revealed in literary and historical texts as sites of complex, contradictory and changing gendered codes.

Celebrating the world's greatest love stories has long been the subject of authors, painters, musicians, dancers, moviemakers, and critics. The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference is pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre from poetry to the movies. We would be particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for instance, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art or music, the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism, and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.

Dr. Monique Ferrell & Dr. Julian Williams - New York City College of Technology, City University of New York

The Editors are seeking essays that examine the ways that women from around the world have served as the oppressive hand in the lives of other women. In this new feminist theory text entitled Her Own Worst Enemy: The Eternal Internal Gender Wars of Our Sisters, the book's ultimate goal is to discuss, explain, and explore the following areas of concern: how women were prevented from being helpful to their sisters; how they may have been encouraged to dismiss woman-centered calls for equality, political clout, or sexual power; or when and how some women were actually forced to turn their backs on their sisters as a means of protecting themselves and what little power they actually possessed.

CFP Other Worlds 3rd December 2012

updated: 
Saturday, July 28, 2012 - 7:13am
Victorian Network and King's College London

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

From other lands to other planets to other dimensions, the nineteenth-century imagination thrived on the idea of 'elsewhere'. Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity. Other Worlds seeks to explore the many ways in which Victorians looked beyond their quotidian spheres to imagined alternatives. We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.
