William Morris’s long and productive career offers multiple entry points for the study of Victorian radicalism: literature and radical politics; the relations among art, art history, and protest; utopianism; and medievalism as a counter-hegemonic discourse. Papers need not confine themselves to Morris. This panel, sponsored by the William Morris Society of the United States, welcomes papers that address topics associated with Morris, including sexuality, gender, poetry, and publishing, using a variety of theoretical approaches. 


The 2017 NeMLA convention will be held March 23-26, 2017 in Baltimore, MD.


Abstracts are due September 30, 2016 and must be submitted via the conference website: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/User/SubmitAbstract/16205
