'Print Culture and the Novel: 1850-1900'

A One-Day Conference, English Faculty, University of Oxford

No longer was it possible for people to avoid reading matter; everywhere
they went it was displayed - weekly papers at a penny or twopence, complete
books, enticing in their bright picture covers, at a shilling, and all fresh
and crisp from the press. No wonder that the fifties, which saw the spread
of Smith's stalls to almost every principal railway line in the country,
were also the period when the sales of books and periodicals reached
unprecedented levels.

Call for Papers for a Collection of Essays
Adaptation: British Literature of the Nineteenth Century and Film
The recent surge of literature and film courses and use of film clips in the
classroom has led to an increase in studies on adaptation. By bringing
together many different approaches to the topic, this book will provide an
overview of the subject of the adaptation of nineteenth-century British works, as
well as examinations into the creation of adaptations and their use in the
classroom. Although a wide range of critical approaches will be considered,
the emphasis should be on what particular adaptations reveal about the ways in

The False God "Favourable Chance" or "Lady Luck?": The Discourse on Gambling in England

Gambling has existed in British literature since Chaucer and before, yet the discourse on gambling exploded in Victorian England. Why was gambling such a divisive topic in the 19th century? High church, low church, secular elite, middle class: each faction opposed games of chance, but for widely disparate reasons. Where did the conflict begin? Why did the debate erupt in the Victorian age? Where has it led since? Papers could approach gambling from literary, historical, cultural, social, and/or philosophical perspectives.
