students know that they, as well as faculty, are welcome to apply, so we
encourage you to share this with any graduate students who might be interested.

2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's On the
Origin of Species. In commemoration of that epochal event, the Midwest
Victorian Studies Association invites proposals for 20-minute conference
papers that explore events or works that signal profound shiftsâ€"“tipping
points”â€"in one or more elements of the artistic, literary, musical,
political, social, religious, or intellectual life of Britain and its
empire during the long nineteenth century. Because MVSA includes
representatives of several disciplines among its active members, our
conference is particularly welcoming to interdisciplinary approaches.
