This volume will explore ‘ordinary writing’ – that is, ‘writing that is typically unseen or ignored and is primarily defined by its status as discardable’ – as an important new way in which to approach the power and identity of marginalised groups in Edwardian Britain (1901-1914). The Edwardian era is often described as a period of intense social conflict and upheaval marked by a heightened awareness of class consciousness, inequality and poverty. Vast social, political and economic changes led to an increasing mobilisation of the lower classes and women, while also bringing about a rise in the number of anarchists and revolutionaries.

(NEO-)VICTORIAN ‘ORIENTATIONS’ IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
University of Málaga (Spain)
May 15-17, 2019
Under the auspices of the Research Project “Orientation: Towards a Dynamic Understanding of Contemporary Fiction and Culture (1990s-2000s)” (ref. FFI2017-86417-P), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, this conference addresses past, present and future orientations of (neo-)Victorian literature and culture.
Many novelists in various national literatures touched upon the theme of an emancipated woman in the long nineteenth century. Imagination, as it is believed, has no borders and is dialogical in its nature. Different voices of great emancipationist writers merged into one influential symphony liberating and awakening consciousness of slaves—males and females. If writers did not support directly or sympathized with the image of an emancipated woman, they did reflect on her place in society and her belonging. World literature allows us to take a closer look at the imagined and real women's lives, at their biographies and reminiscent writing.
Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University invites you to their biennial Conference, 12-15 June 2019.
Famines in Ireland before 1845 and after 1852
The Great Hunger of 1845 to 1852 has cast a long shadow over the subsequent history of Ireland and its diaspora. Since 1995, there has been a renewed interest in studying this event, by scholars, students, archeologists, artists, musicians, folklorists etc. This interest shows no sign of abating. New research, methodologies and approaches have greatly added to our understanding of the causes, impact and legacies of this tragedy.
