and Theory

Co-chairs: Sarah Phillips Casteel and Jennifer Glaser

Following Paul Gilroy's and Jonathan Boyarin's early calls for a dialogue

articulations of black/Jewish relations.

Call for Papers : Teaching the Nineteenth Century

30th Annual Conference of the Nineteenth Century Studies Association

What are the particular challenges of teaching the nineteenth century to
undergraduates? Aside from the contents of our individual courses, is
there common understanding about the nineteenth century that we want

PANEL: Women’s Revisions
18th and 19th Century British Women Writers Conference: Fresh Threads of Connection
Iowa City, IA
April 2-5, 2009

This panel is interested in exploring how women writers of the 18th and 19th centuries connected
themselves to the literary world by revisioning male texts and making them their own. Such
revisioning might be a politically subversive act, a sophisticated reworking of an earlier text, or a
tribute to an influential writer. All genres and periods; sensation fiction is particularly welcome.

For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be.
-‘Locksley Hall’

I remember once in London the realization coming over me, of the whole of
its inhabitants lying horizontal a hundred years hence.
-Alfred Tennyson
