The Victorians Institute is pleased to announce the theme and location of our 2019 conference.
Transatlantic Connections: Africa, the Caribbean, the Americas, & Victorian Studies will take place Oct 31-Nov 2 in Charleston, SC.
Our conference site affords an opportunity to think about transatlantic connections in the 19th century, when Charleston was a prominent intersection on a web that connected Britain, Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas.
Doubles, duality, and doppelgangers are concepts found and addressed throughout Children’s and Young Adult Literature. While twins, such as those found in the Sweet Valley Highor The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamelseries, may overtly speak to doubling, other considerations, such as the “double-voiced discourse” of young adult literature Mike Cadden explores in “The Irony of Narration in Young Adult Literature,” also speaks to the wide treatment doubles and doubling have received by scholars, critics, and authors of Children’s and Young Adult Literature. Children’s and Young Adult Literature are of wide interest to audiences of children, young adults, and adults alike.
The 76th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in Little Rock, Arkansas from October 24-26 at the Little Rock Marriott, near the Clinton Library and the headquarters of Heifer International. It is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Pathways: Past, Present and Future.” The theme takes its cue from Arkansas’s natural beauty, rich history, and diverse culture.
