Queering Neo-Victorianism Beyond Sarah Waters

Special Issue of Neo-Victorian Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

Since the lesbian publishing sensation of the first of Sarah Waters’s trio of neo-Victorian novels, Tipping the Velvet (1998), nineteenth-century queerness has become an increasingly prominent trope across neo-Victorian media and criticism. On the one hand, neo-Victorian queerness functions as a means of recovering marginalised viewpoints and obscured histories, predominantly, though not exclusively, from the LGBTQI+ community. On the other hand, it serves as a strategic tool to negotiate both alliances and tensions between lesbianism and feminism, queer studies and gender theory, or gender-specific and queer-generic positionalities.

Happiness: Enlightenment to PresentKing’s College, CambridgeSaturday, October 19 – Sunday, October 20, 2019 

The question of what makes us happy, let alone how to actually define happiness, has preoccupied writers and philosophers since the Ancient Greeks. Happiness has often been viewed with suspicion; be it located in another world, aligned with worldly dangers, or pictured as an endless pursuit symptomizing our fall from grace. From the Enlightenment onwards, however, writers begin to reinvent or reinvigorate the idea of happiness in new forms. Rather than scold ourselves out of expectation, happiness is viewed as a component of real quotidian life, as something we might learn to expect from our encounters with reality.
