Victorian Netowrk

The ninth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Professor Pamela K. Gilbert (University of Florida), is dedicated to a reassessment of the place of the human body in the Victorian literary and cultural imagination. Rapid medical and scientific advances, advancing industrialization and new forms of labour, legal reforms, the rise of comparative ethnology and anthropology, the growth of consumer culture, and the ever changing trends of Victorian fashion are just a few of the many forces that transformed how Victorians thought about the human body and about the relationship between the embodied, or disembodied, self and the object world.

Although autobiographical writing has ancient origins, the term 'autobiography' itself has only been in use since the late eighteenth century. Theories about autobiographical writing have been developed even more recently. Whereas early autobiographical writing was often either self-celebrating (res gestae) or self-justifying (apologiae), Augustine's Confessions marked a turning point. The contemporary study of autobiography encompasses a broad variety of research perspectives. This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore a broad variety of ideas within the field of autobiography. We invite papers and presentations on the following or related topics:
