CFP: Reverse Colonization in Victorian Fiction

This panel will examine the colonial adventure setting within the very
streets of London, including fiction that describes London in the same
manner in which the colonies are described and addresses the fear of
the colonies "coming home" and taking over London. A variety of
approaches is welcome in discussing the Victorian concerns of progress
and decline. Please send 250-word abstracts via email to Jaime Jordan,
University of Texas at Dallas:

Deadline for abstracts: September 15, 2006
