Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the ways in which Victorian Sensation Fiction interacted with Modernity. We will ask: How did the genre anticipate and respond to late 19th century Parliamentary activity? In what ways did sensation fiction challenge or reflect evolving ideas about gender and identity? Panelists will interrogate sensation fiction's relationship to art and aestheticism movements, advances in technologies including "iron horses," commercial culture, and Modernity's historical and political events, including Britain's empire project. We will discuss the ways in which sensation fiction seeded later literary movements such as the "New Woman" novels.
