â€œGet a Move On!â€: Nineteenth Century Migration and Mobility
A Graduate English Conference sponsored by the University of South
Dates: March 7-8, 2008
Keynote Speaker: Ian Duncan, University of California, Berkeley
Abstract Deadline: December 31, 2007
Immigrants and expatriates, sailors and soldiers, travelers and
wanderers, men and women: people in the nineteenth century were moving.
Novels and new inventions such as railroads, steamships, and street cars
provided vehicles of transport for individuals and their imaginations,
while the transnational movements of ideas and populations gave rise to a
newly globalized Anglo-American literature.
