This session welcomes proposals on any aspect of work in nineteenth-
century literature. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the
following: legal work, the medical profession, housework, needlework,
prostitution, writing, factory work, arts and crafts, teaching,
governesses, companions, chimney sweeps, London Labour and the London
Poor, nursing, the military, the clergy, government service, gambling,
Marxism, imperialism, maid work, prison labor, coal mining, and child
labor. How did literature shape and define nineteenth-century notions of
work? How can we understand the varied issues of work through the
literature of the period?

and short vita (with complete contact information) to Dr. Esther Godfrey,
