VICTORIAN NETWORKS and the PERIODICAL PRESS--Research Society for
Victorian Periodicals Annual Conference, August 21-22, 2009

The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) will hold its
annual conference at the University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis, August 21-
22, 2009.

While papers addressing any aspect of Victorian periodicals will be
considered, RSVP particularly welcomes proposals for papers on the ways
in which the newspaper and periodical press relied on a variety of
networks, including journalistic, business, communication and technology,
transportation, imperialist, immigration, political/activist, scientific,
philosophical, literary, artistic, and other social networks.

Other possible topics: gossip, celebrities, and blackmail; leisure clubs
and societies; networks of influence; Transatlantic and transnational
networks; family and kinship networks; networks of readers, writers, and
publishers; sites of production, distribution, and syndication.

E-mail two-page (maximum) proposals for individual presentations or for
panels of three to all three committee members: Molly Youngkin
<myoungki_at_lmu.edu>, Sally Mitchell <sm_at_temple.edu> and Deborah Mutch
<dmutch_at_dmu.ac.uk>. Include a one-page C.V. with relevant publications,
teaching, and/or coursework. The deadline for submission of proposals is
Feb. 1, 2009. Final papers should take 15 minutes (20 minutes maximum) to
present.
