CFP: Negotiating Homeplace in the 19th-Century (9/15/06; NEMLA, 3/1/07-3/4/07)

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?

Oxford which aims to develop fresh perspectives on literature, society, and the
arts in England between 1870 and 1920. In the six years since its inception,
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

CFP: Image, Sound, & Touch in the Nineteenth Century (7/31/06; collection)

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We are seeking submissions for a collection of previously unpublished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?
