For the majority of William Blake's life, Britain was a nation at war.
Countries, individuals, and ideologies clashed in the ferment of the
American, French, and Industrial Revolutions. Britain experienced
unprecedented levels of mobilisation, chronic food shortages, mass
demonstrations, and the repression of civil liberties.

Panel title: "Colonialism and Knowledge-Making in Eighteenth-Century Europe"

Eighteenth-century colonial expansion gave birth to, enabled, and systematized several European bodies of knowledge: encounters with non-European populations gave rise to large-scale classifications of race in European scientific discourse; a vast and growing body of travel writing produced ethnographies and encyclopedic treatises on peoples and cultures of the globe; scientific exploration abroad aided the development of European natural science.

Revisiting Robert Bage's Fiction
    
    
  The editor (Dr Sandro Jung) of the projected collection on Robert Bage invites full-length chapters (6000-8000 words) on any aspect of Bage's fiction. While Bage's Hermsprong has received occasional scholarly interest, it has, on the whole, remained Bage's only novel that is read nowadays. In that respect, chapters on Bage's other novels would be especially welcome. It is hoped that the novels will be contextualised against the background of the Romantic discourses of identity as well as the political (anti-)Jacobin debates.
    
  Please submit 400-word abstracts electronically to the editor at Sandro.Jung at btinternet.com

Title: Romanticism and the Environment
   
  Chair: Chantelle MacPhee, Department of English, University of Puerto Rico at Cayey
   
  The Romantics have a unique relationship with nature and the environment. The Prelude and other major works reflect on nature, our relationship with it, and the elements.

This session is open to all areas of Romanticism: British, German, American.........

Affect and Sympathy in Romanticism

Special session to be proposed for the MLA Annual Convention 2006 in
Philadelphia, PA

The idea of the autonomous individual in the Romantic period emerged
together with a notion of autonomous affects—of affects that are
created by the individual, rather than being caused by sensual
stimuli. How is it possible for an individual to create its own
affects (feelings or moods)? How could such autonomous affects be
conveyed to others? Would they have to be recreated by the others?
If yes, would such creative affective transfer threaten the notion of
sympathy, of feeling together? What is the relationship between
affect and sympathy in Romanticism?

Lee Anna Maynard

The English IV section (Romantic and Victorian Literature) at SAMLA
seeks papers on "The Child-Woman in Romantic and
Victorian Literature."

In texts from the late eighteenth through the late nineteenth
centuries, women are often given characteristics simultaneously
childlike and sexualized. Poems, novels, conduct books, and visual
arts of the Romantic and Victorian periods accept, foster, and
sometimes interrogate this conflation of the unripe and forbidden
with the sexually desirable. We welcome proposals analyzing the
interplay of these aesthetic and cultural values in Romantic and
Victorian literature.

updated:

Melissa Purdue

Nineteenth-Century Gender Studies is currently accepting submissions for a
special Summer 2006 issue on "The New Woman and Sexuality." The New Woman of
the fin de siecle challenged gender norms by pushing for greater career and
educational opportunities, by arguing for the necessity of marriage reform
and by frankly acknowledging women's sexuality. Some, like Sarah Grand, were
proponents of sexual purity while others like Victoria Cross repeatedly
pushed the boundaries. In this special issue we hope to spark discussion on
this fascinating aspect of New Woman literature that has not yet been fully
explored.

Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

**With apologies for cross-posting.**
As engagements with "Romantic Science" become increasingly varied and
complex, references to the life and works of Erasmus Darwin appear
with increasing frequency in a multitude of contexts. Similarly,
treatments of Darwin's connections to contemporary literary figures,
as well as reexaminations of his own status as a popular poet,
suggest that sustained attention to Darwin can further enrich our
understandings of the relation between poetry and science. Papers
exploring any aspect of these issues in Darwin's works will be
considered. Possible topics may include: Darwin and Evolutionary
Thought; Poetics of Zoology and/or Botany; Darwin and the Lives of
