[ONE MONTH REMINDER OF DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS ] Crossing the Line: Affinities before and after 1900
full name / name of organization:
University of Liverpool
A TWO DAY INTERDISCIPLINARY POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE
CALL FOR PAPERS
Keynote Speaker: Professor Regenia Gagnier (University of Exeter)
Publishing Workshop: 'The Future of Academic Publishing' with Paula Kennedy
Plenary Lecture: 'Funding for Postgraduate Researchers', Dr Mark Llewellyn
“We live in a world that they [the Victorians] built for us, and though we may laugh at them, we should love them, too.”
Crossing the Line is a student-led postgraduate conference that will explore and interrogate the multifarious affinities between Victorian and Modernist cultures. It focuses on the cross-currents of attraction and repulsion at the turn of the century. This event asks whether affinities exist innately in the body as psychological and emotional connections, and investigates those affinities which are cultural constructions. It questions whether affinities are permanent or can be eroded by the passage of time.
We invite research students from the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to present papers considering affinities across the threshold of the Victorian and Modernist worlds.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- Intellectual partnerships and borrowing
Frances MacDonald McNair "A Pond" 1894.
