2008 CONFERENCE for Victorian Interdisciplinary Studies Association of the
Western US (VISAWUS) in Seattle, Oct 2-4, 2008.

2008 is an election year in the US and our topic is meant to rethink the
nature and practices of political across all areas of Victorian life. For a
list of suggested (but not limiting) topics, see www.visawus.org and click
to link to conferences. This conference will consider the notion of
Victorian politics in the widest possible meaning. Topics from all
disciplines are welcome and can cover

*cultural politics (literature, art, performing arts)
*gender politics
*domestic politics
*political economy
*politics of specific disciplines (e.g., sciences, ethnography, history)
*imperial politics
*identity politics
*politics of urban life and rural life
*politics of and in the periodical press
*history and historiographic politics of the revised past
*class politics (including education, suffrage, labor)
*politics of social change
*politics of travel and travel writing
*political parties and politicians
*the pedagogy of teaching Victorian politics

This list is by no means exhaustive and VISAWUS welcomes scholars in
disciplines often underrepresented at Victorian studies conferences:
history of science, economics, political science, music, anthropology and
sociology.

The website--ww.visawus.org--will have updated material on hotel, plenary
speaker, and registration after January 15, 2008. Paper presentations will
be 20 minutes in length.
