30th-April 1st 2006. Rutgers: The State University of New Jersey - New
Brunswick. Topic: CONFLICTS.

We welcome papers that draw on any aspect of conflict relating to the
"long nineteenth-century" – including the adoption of this expression
itself. They might address issues of periodization (Romantic vs.
Victorian, Victorian vs. modern, Romantic vs. modern); contemporary
debates (evolution, secular vs. religious culture, establishment vs.
dissent, class struggle and class consciousness); public vs. private
issues (and the validity of such distinctions) involving, for example,
generational opposition, sibling rivalry, adultery, domestic violence, and
sexual orientation; physical combat and warfare (wrestling and pugilism to
the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimea, Lucknow, the Boer War), riots and state
interventions (Peterloo, Preston, the Gordon riots); press debates and
controversies; and such theoretical oppositions as global/insular,
regional/cosmopolitan, and high/low.

Longer versions of INCS conference papers are regularly published in the
affiliated *Nineteenth-Century Contexts: An Interdisciplinary Journal*.
