I am hoping to round out a panel titled "Rediscovering Victorian Latin America" (or something to this effect). Essentially, it aims to stimulate a current examination of what Latin America means to Victorian studies today via innovative cross-cultural readings of either Victorian literature, periodicals, and cultural products, Latino immigration to the UK, or British colonial settlements in Hispanophone South America/Caribbean. The panel may also possibly reflect upon earlier scholarship in this sub-field (if that is of concern to any participants).
Deadline for Proposals: 20 October 2019

Alternative Narratives of Trauma in Recent Latin American Cultural Production:
The minority research profile at Åbo Akademi University invites you to its fifth annual seminar that will take place in Vaasa, Finland from May 6th to 8th, 2020. The 2020 theme is “Curriculums for Social Justice” with the aim to collectively discuss how to develop justice-oriented pedagogies. With permeating signs of racism, harassment and violence, as well as increasing social inequalities both locally and globally, there is a need to reflect on the role of education in relation to social justice.
Recent scholarship on Chaucer has focused on his global influences and receptions. But how global was England in the century after Chaucer? This panel will explore this question, seeking answers in discussion of previously overlooked texts (such as Lydgate’s Fabula Duorum Mercatorum), consideration of source study, and pedagogical practice. This panel hopes to illuminate global roads into and outward from English literature of the fifteenth century, examining how its authors perceived and represented cultures and peoples far afield from their own, but also considering how those authors’ works were received, and how we view them today both in our scholarship and in the classroom.
