PAST VS PRESENT
http://www.victorians.group.cam.ac.uk/Past-vs-Present.html
Joint meeting of the British Association for Victorian Studies and the
North American Victorian Studies Association
Hosted by the Cambridge Victorian Studies Group
13-15 JULY 2009
CHURCHILL COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE, UK

How did the Victorians rearrange the past? What new pasts did they
discover?

Conference Topics Include:
The ways in which new discoveries across diverse fields helped shape new
disciplines such as geology, biology, linguistics, classics, history and
archaeology; The proliferation of myths of origin - cosmic, geological,
biological, historical, and anthropological; New technologies and tools
for investigating the past - such as photography or museology; Diverse
and even contradictory responses to the past from different groups of
people; What the Victorians decided to throw out, and what they decided
to keep; The heritage that the Victorians invented for us - are we still
living in a Victorian world?

The conference will feature four plenaries, eight special sessions, ten
workshops, outings in Victorian Cambridge, and an after-banquet Literary
Panel with neo-Victorian novelists.
