CFP: [Victorian] Affective Aesthetics: Representations of Emotion

Friday, March 21, 2008 - 7:53pm
Rice University

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.

This panel will focus on the production, circulation, and reception of
English-language literature written by Indians during the nineteenth
century, in order to extend our understanding of Victorian arts and culture
into a broader comparative and international context. Possible questions to
be addressed include: To what extent and in what ways did
nineteenth-century Indian-English literature circulate in various print
media such as books, pamphlets, periodicals, prints, and advertisements?
How did this literature react to British imperial structures--formal,
material, ideological--and the influence of Western generic conventions and

Since our first two conferences met with such success, The University of

opportunity to explore and enact just what it means to be part of the
English profession. Bring whatever you are currently working on and engage

CFP: [Victorian] Rethinking Victorian Studies

Tuesday, March 11, 2008 - 4:46pm
Sharleen Mondal

Even as Victorian Studies owes much to critical work that engages in
theoretically sophisticated, insightful analysis of the various social and
cultural processesâ€"including liberalism, imperialism, and nationalismâ€"that
inform literary production, the need to revisit the core assumptions that
undergird much of this work remains critically urgent. Some assumptions
about the Victorian period itself that once seemed foundational, such as
gendered notions of public and private, or issues around class identity,
are being reconceptualized, as are romantic critiques of the Enlightenment
and poststructuralist denouncements of nineteenth-century democratic
