deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Victorian literature in adaptation is a mix of “high” and “low” culture: filmmakers like Kenneth Branagh or Francis Ford Coppola might adapt the canonical literature of Mary Shelley or Bram Stoker into prestige films, while the same stories are remixed in comic books and parodied in TikToks.

The Everyday Beyond Description (Panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Contact Hannah LeClair (hleclair@sas.upenn.edu) and Molly Young (mryoung@sas.upenn.edu) with any questions.

The Everyday Beyond Description (Panel):

Nineteenth-century British realism is often understood as the generic manifestation of the everyday, with a discrete kind of content—scenes of domestic and rural life, for instance—and, in the novel, a discrete form, namely the “mimetic” description of these social worlds.

Call for Book Chapters: "A Vain Talent (?): Anne Brontë and the Question of Female Artistry

updated: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022 - 11:16pm
Vernon Press
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited anthology on Anne Brontë and the question of female artistry. Though interest and scholarship in Anne has grown in recent years, the youngest Brontë sister is still the least known and researched. Her bicentennial in 2020 was interrupted by the pandemic, and so there was not the same celebration and promotion of her life and work as her sisters.

 

This anthology seeks chapters on the question of female artistry as it relates to Anne’s life and work. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

 

  • The art (paintings, sketches, etc.) of Anne Brontë

  • Anne Brontë’s artistry as an author

NeMLA: Resilience and Resistance: Embracing Disability Narratives in 19th-century Fiction

updated: 
Thursday, August 25, 2022 - 5:57pm
NeMLA 2023 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Resilience and Resistance: Embracing Disability Narratives in Nineteenth-Century Fiction proposes a space for scholars to present research on disability studies and narrative agency in British fiction from the period. Disability studies is concerned with altering the contemporary political landscape to procure protections for disabled individuals and communities, question structures which uphold barriers to equal access, and challenge ideologies of ability that affirm ableist notions of social participation. Disability studies also challenges individuals and scholars to analyze the historical, literary, medical, and social understandings of disability to dismantle ableist structures.

Modernist Jany Eyre?

updated: 
Tuesday, August 23, 2022 - 2:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Coming to Charlotte Brontë's 1847 novel, Jane Eyre, for the first time, one may be struck by its apparently forward-looking elements, ones that do not seem to line up with expectations for early Victorian novels. In terms of the novel's explorations of inner consciousness, one observer finds that Jane Eyre is a precursor of modernist authors such as Proust, Woolf, and Joyce. Furthermore, Jane's keen awareness of women's equality with men in terms of the right to education, access to the wider world, and happiness in a relationship has distinctly feminist overtones. But may Jane Eyre be classified as a modernist and feminist work of literature?

17th International Connotations Symposium: “And this gives life to thee” - Textual Reasons for Canonicity

updated: 
Thursday, August 18, 2022 - 7:54am
Connotations: Society for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Recent debates on canonicity have focused on how canons are a product of social and historical conditions as well as of reception. Texts become canonical when they are felt to embody the spirit of an age or to voice concerns considered universal at a particular moment. But what about the texts themselves? Can any text become canonical in any way? Or are there any specific textual reasons for such an elevated status? This latter question is what our symposium wishes to address.

British Women Writers Conference: Liberties

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2023

The organizers of the 2023 BWWC invite papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of ‘Liberties’ in global and transatlantic British women’s writing from the long eighteenth century to the present. We ask participants to consider ‘liberties’ not only as a political abstraction but also as part of material and experiential subjectivity. Interpreted broadly, liberties include (but are not limited to) legal rights and freedoms, liberty of the person and bodily autonomy, liberties of creative and artistic expression, liberty of profession and vocation, freedom of movement both physical and social, and self-determination in the private and public spheres.

We invite abstracts devoted specifically to the analysis of any aspect of Russian realist novels of the nineteenth century, as well as papers on broader philosophical and social issues relevant to the Russian realist novel tradition and its influence world-wide.

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale

updated: 
Friday, July 22, 2022 - 9:35am
Journals@MTSU, James Walker Library, Middle Tennessee State University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2022

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale (I19) seeks to publish the best scholarship on the century that was, in many ways, the time period in which the modern genres of science fiction and fantasy began, and in which the academic study of fairy tale and folklore has its roots. I19 interprets “the nineteenth century” broadly, using the dates of “The Long Nineteenth Century”—roughly, from the beginning of the French Revolution to the end of World War I—but even these dates are just notable historical markers as they approximately coincide with Romanticism and Modernism, respectively.
