The English IV section (Romantic and Victorian Literature) at SAMLA
seeks papers on "The Child-Woman in Romantic and
Victorian Literature."

In texts from the late eighteenth through the late nineteenth
centuries, women are often given characteristics simultaneously
childlike and sexualized. Poems, novels, conduct books, and visual
arts of the Romantic and Victorian periods accept, foster, and
sometimes interrogate this conflation of the unripe and forbidden
with the sexually desirable. We welcome proposals analyzing the
interplay of these aesthetic and cultural values in Romantic and
Victorian literature.

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is currently accepting submissions for a
special Summer 2006 issue on "The New Woman and Sexuality." The New Woman of
the fin de siecle challenged gender norms by pushing for greater career and
educational opportunities, by arguing for the necessity of marriage reform
and by frankly acknowledging women's sexuality. Some, like Sarah Grand, were
proponents of sexual purity while others like Victoria Cross repeatedly
pushed the boundaries. In this special issue we hope to spark discussion on
this fascinating aspect of New Woman literature that has not yet been fully
explored.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

**With apologies for cross-posting.**
As engagements with "Romantic Science" become increasingly varied and
complex, references to the life and works of Erasmus Darwin appear
with increasing frequency in a multitude of contexts. Similarly,
treatments of Darwin's connections to contemporary literary figures,
as well as reexaminations of his own status as a popular poet,
suggest that sustained attention to Darwin can further enrich our
understandings of the relation between poetry and science. Papers
exploring any aspect of these issues in Darwin's works will be
considered. Possible topics may include: Darwin and Evolutionary
Thought; Poetics of Zoology and/or Botany; Darwin and the Lives of

"Splendour in the Grass":
2006 Victorian Studies Association of Ontario Spring Conference Call for Papers
(Extended Deadline: 30 January 2006)

Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendour in the grass,
Of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.

- William Wordsworth, "Intimations of Immortality" (1803-06)

Just as Wordsworth's poem opens itself up to numerous interpretations, so too
does the Victorian Studies Association of Ontario wish to open its conference
to the consideration of a range of subjects around Victorian notions of nature,
splendour, spirit, and knowledge.
