CFP: Matthew Arnold (no deadline noted; journal issue)

Tuesday, April 12, 2005 - 1:11am
Clinton Machann

8 April 2005

Nineteenth-Century Prose invites submissions for a special issue on Matthew
Arnold. We encourage a wide range of topics focusing on prose works by
Arnold as well as topics related to broader issues regarding Arnold's
influence on literature (including individual authors), literary and
cultural studies, religious studies, and education. Arnold's current
standing in cultural studies or other academic fields is of particular
interest. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcomed. Submissions which
discuss both Arnold's poetry and prose are appropriate, but not those which
focus exclusively on poetry.

Interdisciplinary Essays on Wilkie Collins

Papers are being sought for a collection of essays on Wilkie Collins.
Edited by Andrew Mangham, the collection will be printed by Cambridge
Scholars Press in Spring 2006. I am particularly interested in essays

theatre and film adaptation. I am also interested in essays that explore
the historical, periodical context of Collins's work.

in length and follow the author/date system.

    While 18th and 19th century women were usually confined to the domestic

unexplored territories: their journeys to the Orient (Lady Montagu, Lady
Blunt, Gertrude Bell, Amelia Edwards, Freya Stark), to India (Emily Eden,
Fanny Parks), to America (Isabella Bird, Clara Bromley, France Trollope), to
Africa (Mary Kingsley) or to Australia (Daisy Bates) gave rise to

CFP: Thomas Hardy Postgraduate Symposium (grad) (UK) (5/2/05; 7/22/06-7/29/06)

Angelique Richardson

Phillip Mallett, University of St Andrews, Jane Thomas, University of Hull,
and Angelique Richardson, University of Exeter, are co-organizing a
postgraduate symposium which will form part of the international Thomas
Hardy Conference, 22-29 July 2006, Dorchester. We are keen to involve
young and new scholars in the Conference, which is the 17th biennial
Hardy conference, and it would be immensely useful to the Hardy Society
to have a general idea as to the number of postgraduates in the UK and US
currently working on Hardy (or whose research includes Hardy), and
whether they would be likely to come to the conference (would there, for
example, be any financial support from your institution). So if you are
