lost time, waiting may also intensify experience and become a condition in which to consider
questions of modernity, aesthetic process, politics, erotics and the tempos of everyday life.

CFP: [Victorian] Transatlantic Exchanges, 1783-1863

Wednesday, December 3, 2008 - 5:01pm
Julia M. Wright

Call for Essays: Transatlantic Exchanges from the Anglo-American War to the
Emancipation Proclamation (c. 1783-1863)

A new and burgeoning field of interdisciplinary investigation,
transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation
to exchanges, interactions, and negotiations that occurred between and
among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As
a result, transatlantic research calls into question established
disciplinary boundaries that have long functioned to segregate various
national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the
traditional academic emphasis upon periodization and canonization.
