This conference seeks to assess the state of contemporary neo-Victorian literature, film, television and other media, with papers offering new readings of neo-Victorian texts. The conference also seeks to interrogate the critical field surrounding the notion of the neo-Victorian by asking how we, as scholars, understand this genre and its allied politics. Does the current cultural interest in the "new Victorian" imply a resistance to post-modernism, post-structuralism or post-humanism? Or, can neo-Victorianism help us interrogate these terms? How does our post-Victorian landscape accommodate and manipulate the neo-Victorian urge?

Wednesday, November 2, 2011 - 12:25am
Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization

Graduate students are hybrid creatures in academia: we are both educators and students, innovators and learners. As we strive to master the foundational knowledges of our disciplines, we also challenge preconceptions, explore neglected or newly discovered areas, rethink our assumptions; ultimately, we create new knowledge.

This year, the Virginia Tech English Graduate Student Organization (EGSO) warmly invites our colleagues from all disciplines to share the ways in which they are revising, reforming, and recreating accepted disciplinary knowledge to form the next generation of scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary approaches and also encourage proposals from traditional humanities.
