Leiden October Conference 2006: The Literary Utopias of Cultural =
Communities, 1790-1945

English Department University of Leiden The Netherlands=20

25 - 27 October 2006

Writing literature is often deemed a solitary enterprise. Literary =
history, however, has proven that, next to famous literary recluses such =
as Thomas Pynchon, there have always existed communities of writers, =
often joined by artists working in different media. From the =
Shelley-Circle to the Bloomsbury group, many of these cultural =
communities engaged with utopian schemes and philosophies in their work. =

REVISITING ELIZABETH GASKELL AND HER WORKS

2-day conference on Elizabeth Gaskell

22-23 September 2006, University of Salford, UK

In recent years Elizabeth Gaskell has attracted renewed scholarly attention,
and contextualisations of her minor works and letters were offered in

The conference offers to supplement this research by a comprehensive
consideration of Gaskell's major and lesser-known works. A publisher has
expressed interest in publishing revised versions of the conference papers.

Panel: Negotiating Homeplace in the Nineteenth Century

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007
Baltimore, Maryland

During the English and American industrial eras (1840-1910), homelessness was
more than a lack of home ownership. It often implied a lack of opportunity, a
lack of identity, a lack of acceptance. During this era, how did individuals
negotiate their space (or lack thereof)? How did their homes – or lack
thereof – aid or hinder their own development and position in society? What
spaces did they transform, and in what ways did they manage to maintain,
create, or reconstitute their homes?

the series has provided a vibrant forum for both graduates and established
academics, hosting presentations on subjects as diverse as the 'Aesthetic
Eighties', Jerome K. Jerome and the rise of the literary professional, Oscar
Wilde and archaeology, trouble-making in George Moore's fiction, Robert
Bridges's classical poetry, and the aesthetics of smell in literature and art.

Call for Papers: Image, Sound, & Touch in the Nineteenth Century (Collection)

We are seeking submissions for a collection of previously unpublished
essays on Image, Sound, and Touch in the Nineteenth Century.

How might the image look if we approach it through the sensations and
technologies of sound and touch? What can the nineteenth century teach us
about the inter-related and remedial qualities of media? In what ways do
we reproduce the apparent ocular-centrism of the nineteenth century in our
current critical practices?
