Neo-Victorian Studies

Neo-Victorian Studies is currently soliciting scholarly and creative work for its 2012/13 general issue. The editors welcome articles from established and early career scholars and creative artists on any topic related to the exploration of nineteenth-century legacies from twentieth/twenty-first-century perspectives. We encourage papers that push the understanding or cultural memory of the 'Victorian' beyond its usual temporal and geographical boundaries, investigating the politics of memorialisation, appropriation, adaptation and revision within inter-disciplinary frameworks and across multimedia.

3rd Global Conference
Making Sense Of: Suicide

Saturday 10th November – Monday 12th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call For Papers:
\Suicide, the deliberate and intentional act of ending one's life, is an assault on our ideas of what living is about. Whether we believe that we have the right to end our own life because we no longer wish to live, or that suicide is never morally permissible, the fact that people can arrange their deaths and that some do, challenges us to think about the nature of life, and of death.

Everyone is affected by it, whether directly or indirectly.
