The 2020 NAVSA conference will be held in Vancouver, BC November 12-14th 2020. The theme is "Unsettling Victorians".

I am seeking proposals for a panel on George Eliot. The call for papers is below and also availbale on the NAVSA website: https://www.navsa2020.org/open-calls-for-papers

The recent bicentennial of George Eliot’s birth offers a compelling opportunity to revitalize the study of one of the most compelling, controversial, and successful authors of the Victorian period. This panel invites papers that explore the “unsettling” aspects of George Eliot’s life and work. Send 250-word abstract and 1-2-page CV to Charlotte Fiehn (cfiehn@utexas.edu) by February 1st.
