C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists seeks paper and panel submissions to its second biennial conference, which will take place April 12-15, 2012 at the historic Berkeley City Club and at the beautiful University of California, Berkeley campus. We invite individual papers or panels on any aspect of U.S. literary culture—broadly conceived—during the long nineteenth century, including those that bring insights from visual, sound, or performance studies into conversation with literary/textual studies. Topics and approaches might include but are not limited to transnational, hemispheric, and oceanic studies; the impact of new media and digital technologies on research and teaching practices in the field; history of the book and print culture; critical race, ethnicity, indigeneity, border and diaspora studies; urban/rural studies and critical geography; gender, sexuality and queer studies; religion, belief, and secularization; democracy and citizenship; the body, affect, and disability studies; science and technology studies; spectatorship, collecting, and museum studies; migration, multilingualism, and translation; literature and philosophy; theories of the archive and the canon. Proposals due Oct. 1, 2011. For more information and the full CFP, please see our website: c19americanists.org
