Any proposals dealing with 19th century British literature and culture are welcome, but we are particularly interested in papers that relate to the conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing" by examining the following: theatrical posters, their relationship to the plays they promote, and their effect on popular culture; book illustrations, illustrators, and the relationships between authors and their illustrators; or issues of surveillance, the gaze, and performative identities and appearances. To submit an abstract for this session, please go to:
