Call for Papers : Teaching the Nineteenth Century

30th Annual Conference of the Nineteenth Century Studies Association
Milwaukee, Wisconsin March 26-28, 2009

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
students to gain? What challenges do we face teaching interdisciplinary
topics to students who may have little background in the history,
philosophy, science, or art of the nineteenth century?

PANEL: Women’s Revisions
18th and 19th Century British Women Writers Conference: Fresh Threads of Connection
Iowa City, IA
April 2-5, 2009
http://www.uiowa.edu/~englgrad/bwwc/

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.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:

Expanding Literacy Studies is an International, Interdisciplinary
Conference for Graduate Students to be held April 3-5, 2009, at The Ohio
State University.

Literacy Studies is a recent construct. At the same time, it addresses
long-standing questions and concerns within and across disciplines. But
what is literacy? Who is studying it? And how is it being studied?
