The 37th Annual Nineteenth-Century French Studies Colloquium hopes to foster a discussion of laws and order as represented in French literature and culture of the long century: how they were established, supported, questioned, and overthrown; how the ideological grounds upon which they were constructed were solidified or destabilized; and how authors, characters, themes or formal elements reflect varying degrees of respect for established sets of rules.

The colloquium will take place October 27-29, 2011 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Submissions for individual papers or sessions may be in French or English and should be in the form of an abstract (250-300 words) sent as an e-mail attachment in Word to the address below. For session proposals, a separate abstract for each paper should be included. The deadline for all submissions is March 15, 2011. Please indicate your A/V requirements on your abstract.
