British Border Crossing: Romantic and Victorian (Inter)Textuality and the Destabilization of Boundaries
We invite paper and panel proposals that examine the destabilization of boundaries and borders arising within the intertextual space of British Literature between 1800 and 1900. Proposals may address any type of boundary or border destabilized within the literary texts of this period, including, among others, the various genres, disciplines, genders, races, geographies, cultures, religions, laws, sciences, and governments.
